Sam Bass Theatre Opens IT COULD BE ANY ONE OF US Tonight

February 8
12:30 AM 2013


"It Could Be Any One of Us" by Sir Alan Ayckbourn opens tonight, February 8th at Sam Bass Community Theatre. Directed by Frank Benge.

In a remote and dilapidated country house, three siblings share an antagonistic life together. All are artists who have failed to live up to their own, let alone anyone else's, expectations. The older brother Mortimer is a composer who has never realized his youthful potential, his sister Jocelyn is a writer of thrillers who has never completed a novel and Brinton is a painter, who does not even let his family see his work. When Jocelyn's partner, Norris - an insurance investigator with aspirations to be a real detective - arrives home and interrupts a recital by Mortimer, a row breaks out in which Mortimer reveals he intends to disinherit the family and give the house to a former student, Wendy Jones. When Wendy arrives, a murder takes place and the murderer is... well, that's where it gets a bit tricky... because it changes every night. From the comedic genius of Sir Alan Ayckbourn (Absurd Person Singular, How the Other Half Loves, The Norman Conquests) comes the comedy murder mystery "It Could Be Any One of Us". But this isn't your ordinary murder mystery... this one contains a twist in the style of "Clue"; there are three possible murderers and the murderer changes with every performance during a card game played on-stage. So, it's possible to see the show three times and never have the same person revealed to have done the dastardly deed!

The cast features William Parcher as Mortimer Chalke, Joe David as Norris Honeywell, Lynn S. Beaver as Jocelyn Chalke, Jeff Mulligan as Brinton Chalke, Linda Myers as Wendy Windwood and Kelly Hamilton as Amy Chalke.

This production is directed by Frank Benge (Harold & Maude, The Women, All in the Timing)
