Do you consider yourself an astute observer? Do you listen carefully? How well do you know the people who live next door? And how do you know that the person who just passed your table at the restaurant isn’t a murderer?
With a true “show must go on” attitude, Nunn doesn’t consider the lack of a consistent performance space as a detriment. In fact, it meets her mission in bringing the “theatre experience to people where they are”. This is the fourth murder mystery the company has presented at the Pittsboro Roadhouse in a year. They’ve also presented a cabaret, “Adam and Eve” a play penned by Mark Twain, and a production of “A Christmas Carol”. Nunn has only excellent reviews for her hosts at the Roadhouse, “Greg and Maria Lewis at the Pittsboro Roadhouse have been absolutely fantastic, amazingly supportive.”
Many Chathamites will recognize the playwright of “Goodnight, Death: A Banned Book Murder Mystery”. Rose Pate, is a writer and the librarian at Jordan Matthews High School and knew Jessica Nunn from her years as a student there. Sounds to us like real life might share some aspects of the story in the play…will that help audience members figure out whodunnit? Go See This and find out.
