The Butler Did It, Again!
May 11-20, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.
Theatre-goers looking for a night of mystery should check out The Butler Did It, Again! at The Cat Theatre. This play combines the thrill of a murder mystery with the hilarity of a raucous comedy. Presented by Improbable Fiction Theatre Company, the same team that created the highly successful The Butler Did It, this sequel furthers the hysterical antics. The mystery writers are brought together once again by Miss Maple for a fun-filled weekend party, each impersonating the detective characters they write, including the gumshoe, sophisticated New York couple (à la Nick and Nora), soft-spoken crime-solving priest, Asian “quotemaster,” and cowboy investigator, with the addition of a novelist who writes supernatural fiction.
The hostess has prepared exciting events to challenge the writers during the party, but one occurs that she didn’t count on – an actual murder! The writers scramble to solve “whodunit” before they become the next victim. But actual detectives they are not, so they blunder through this real-life investigation, with comical results.
The Butler Did It, Again! runs May 11-20, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m., with the doors opening 45 minutes prior to the show. Tickets can be purchased online at https://squ.re/2G98z5j, and ticket prices are $15. The Cat Theatre is located at 254 Veterans Way, Carmel, IN 46032.
