"Deadly Games" presented by Candlelight Theatre

April 11-12, 25-27 and May 2-3, 2014

Games are fun, challenging and the perfect amusing diversion. But when some games backfire, the consequences--intended or otherwise--are fatal.  Deadly Games, Candlelight Theatre's 2014 spring production, stages three plays where the games have taken a lethal turn.  Patrons will experience all three plays performed in three different rooms of Harrison mansion.  Candlelight, historical artifacts, and an intimate setting ensconce audience members in the diabolical action.

The dining room is the setting for "The Suicide Club" by James Trofatter, based on the short story by Robert Louis Stevenson.  Members of an exclusive club unite for a card game of chance where the winner receives a most unusual and deadly prize.  But the game takes on a mind of its own and all is not exactly as it appears to be.

The comical mystery "Blind Woman's Bluff" by Janet S. Tiger will be performed in the sitting room.  A vulnerable blind woman advertises that she has a chair for sale.  A young villain, with the intent of robbing her, responds to the ad.  However, things do not go as he planned.

"Games We Played" by Michael Yashinsky will be staged in the back parlor.  An emotionally immature master of games, rejected by his lover, hopes to win her back through his only method of persuasion--games.  What he doesn't realize is that his game is not the only one being played.

Don't roll the dice and take a chance on missing your opportunity to see these deadly mysteries in the mansion.
