As the mystery deepens, so does the confusion. Will the audience discover the truth of the Peanut Murderer? Will Spring regain her memory? Will the hero win the girl? Will the villain stop twirling his mustache? Only time alone will tell and you need to be there to find out!

Directed by Melodee Bass and Co-Directed by Kirk Bass the duo presents the first play of our season with The Potman Spoke Sooth, a comedy farce by David Fulk. In this Agatha Christie spoof, murder turns into a farcical game of illusion meets reality, featuring the notorious peanut murderer. For the second, one act play, No Mother to Guide Her: Or, More to be Pitied than Censured, centers on an old fashioned melodrama (comedy) by Anthony Forsythe. When young Spring Overton is lost and has amnesia, she is found by black hearted rogue Talbot Twillingham then saved by her hero, Casper Vanderburgh.
