Western Gold Theatre kicks off their 2019 season with J.B. Priestly’s Mystery at Greenfingers, where at the closed Greenfingers Palace Hotel part of the staff, preparing for the new season, is enduring an unanticipated violent snowstorm. Into this group comes Robert Crowther, the rather stupid house detective sent to investigate something secret. As the snowstorm intensifies, a Miss Tracey appears, requesting accommodation for her and her passenger.
That night shots are heard and Miss Tracey’s passenger disappears from her room, even though the doors and windows are locked from the inside. Crowther questions the chef, the housekeeper, two maids, the new social hostess, the bartender, and the assistant manager, to no avail. Who did it and why is the puzzling, clever and witty resolution.
Anna Hagan directs this staged reading featuring Daria Banu, Dave Campbell, Tanja Dixon-Warren, Keith Martin Gordey, Annabel Kershaw, Olivia Lang, Gerry MacKay, Bronwen Smith, Sean Sonier, and Colleen Winton.
