Beatniks on Conkey proudly presents a Comedy Thriller, "The Butler Did It" by Walter and Peter Marks. Directed by Bonnie Johnson.
The scene is the set where Anthony J. Lefcourt, writer and director, is rehearsing his new play, a “classic whodunit” (in which all the characters are named Butler) with which he hopes to regain the success that has eluded him in recent seasons. Desperately eager to stimulate his cast to their best efforts, he has deliberately withheld the final scene of the play from them. In an effort to spur them on he “stages” the murder of one of the actresses, after which the plot begins to twist and turn with such dazzling ingenuity—and hilarity—that soon actors and audience alike have lost track of what is real and what is make-believe—until a surprise ending sets matters straight in a most bizarre and ironic way.
"The Butler Did It" plays Friday and Saturday, October 8,9, 15 and 16 at 7:30pm and Sunday October 10 and 17 at 2:00pm, the doors open 1/2 hour before the show. The cost of the show is $18.00 and refreshments will be available.
