C Term

Spider's Web

February 16th - 18th, 2017 at 7 pm, Little Theatre
Directed by Shannon Healey
Produced by Richard Cole

Clarissa, the wife of a Foreign Office, has a wild imagination. She lives in the slow, boring countryside where nothing ever really happens apart from entertaining guests. Thus she develops an interesting game called supposing. She often wonders and imagines what her life would be like if she made certain choices. Supposing I were to come down one morning and find a dead body in the library, what should I do? she muses. What am I going to do? Clarissa earns the chance to find out what would happen if her supposing game came true when she finds a body in the drawing room of her home. Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband comes home with an important foreign politician, Clarissa persuades her three houseguests to become accessories and accomplices. It seems that the murdered man was not unknown to certain members of the house party (but which ones?), and the search begins for the murderer and the motive, while at the same time trying to persuade a police inspector that there has been no murder at all.
Prepare for a night of mystery, mischief, mayhem, and murder! Masque and the WPI Humanities & Arts: Drama Theatre will entangle you in Agatha Christie’s Spider’s Web from Thursday February 16th to Saturday February 18th in the Little Theatre. The Queen of Suspense spins a tale of murder, blackmail, and deception in a mysterious mansion.
