SANDWICH — Indian Valley Theatre is busy preparing for its annual dinner theater in February. This year, the troupe is presenting Ken Ludwig’s murder-mystery comedy “Postmortem.”
IVT also announced that Wright Insurance Agency LLC of Sandwich, Bob and Jeannette Wright, are sponsoring the show. The Wrights have enjoyed IVT’s presentations for years and couldn’t imagine a better way to support their community. Their donation allows IVT to purchase the rights from the publishing house, Samuel French, thus offsetting the costs of production.
“Postmortem” is a classic example of the whodunit genre. It has all the elements expected - devious characters, witty dialogue, brain-teasing plot twisters, glamour, dark secrets, a little bit of romance, a little bit of scandal and a whole lot of suspense. It is based on the somewhat strange life of William Gillette, one of the most popular American actors of the early 20th century, who pioneered the role of Sherlock Holmes on the stage. The story takes place at the famed Gillette Castle in Connecticut.
“Postmortem” performances are set Friday, Feb. 22 through Sunday, Feb. 24. For more information on the show and upcoming ticket sales, visit www.indianvalleytheatre.com or call producer Christine Roe at 630-631-2323.
“Postmortem” is published by Samuel French. Indian Valley Theatre is an Illinois not-for-profit organization dedicated to appreciation and development of performing arts in the Fox Valley Community.
