Murder Anonymous by Lois Gordon is a new Canadian play created for Theatre Ancaster’s Classics Company. The play takes place at the Tenth Annual Writers’ Conference where red herrings and plot twists leave these mystery writers sorting fact from fiction when one of their own is found dead. The question is…Whodunit? It’s a classic murder mystery where you get to enjoy the suspense, rivalry, and black comedy as the writers try to solve the murder before the police arrive.
This new play is presented by our Classics Company members, aged 55 and up!
Dates and Times:
