Based on Charles Dickens' unfinished novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood recreates the lively, bawdy world of a Victorian era British music hall. A distinguished company of actors attempts to tell the story of the upstanding young Edwin Drood who mysteriously disappears, presumably murdered.  However, the culprit is unknown. It could be his drug-addicted, romantic rival John Jasper, the infamous Princess Puffer, Reverend Mr. Chrisparkle, maybe even the immigrants from Ceylon.

Frederick Knott’s thriller is the story of Susy Hendrix, a recently blinded housewife who unwittingly possesses a doll filled with illicit drugs. Three hardened criminals present
an elaborate and dangerous con scheme in order the get it back. In a desperate battle of wits, Susy attempts to turn her sightlessness into an advantage in order to find the truth and protect herself and her family. This masterfully constructed thriller plays on themes of darkness and light as it moves from one moment of suspense to another, building toward an electrifying, breath-stopping final scene. A Broadway hit, it is probably best remembered by the highly-regarded 1967 film version featuring Audrey Hepburn and Alan Arkin.

An original theatre piece, this world premiere is inspired by the Henry VI plays of William Shakespeare, and the video game Skyrim. More than simply a recreation of a bygone world, however, the stage will be turned into a modern arena of company warfare, where business suits mingle with epic sword battles and dramas of intrigue. An idealistic but reluctant hero becomes an unwitting pawn of the powers competing for corporate dominance. Personal ambition and pride compete for the public’s loyalty, which is proven as fickle and uncontrollable as ever. In the end, the hero must decide whether to remain faithful to his ideals, or compromise for his own survival in a world that seems outside of everyone’s control.

Guest Artist Jon Ferguson, founder and Artistic Director of Theatre Forever, is a critically acclaimed director and theater-maker, specializing in collaboratively created new work and radical adaptations of classics. His work has been seen at The Southern Theater, The Guthrie Theater, Open Eye Figure Theater, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and The New York Clown Theater Festival.
