“The House of Agatha Mystrie” features Ms. Mysteries, the famous and prolific mystery writer, who gathers a group of the world's finest (and most peculiar) detectives at her home for a weekend of rollicking and relaxation. Her guests include Nancy Sketch, Sherlucky Holmes, Clues II, the Hardly Brothers (although they're hardly brothers), and Rob Remington, private investigator. Once all together, Ms. Mystrie convinces them all to solemnly promise not to solve any mystery for two whole days. Everyone, though skeptical, complies. But when the body of a mysterious guest is found, everyone must decide whether to keep their promise. This play is full of frenzied one-liners and comic word-play.
A bar will be open for each performance.
After the play, the audience is invited to the Dickinson room on the third floor for a dessert reception during which they can mingle with the cast. Desserts are generously provided by the Smyrna Opera House Guild and are included in the price of the ticket.
Tickets are $16 for general admission, $14 for Opera House members, senior citizens, and military, and $8 children 12 and under. Some content may not be considered appropriate for children. Attendance by children is at the discretion of parents.
