Time is running out to see the first play of the 2011/2012 ECHO Players season.
Laura by Vera Caspary and George Sklar runs until October 30.
Directed by the experienced ECHO member Werner Koch, Laura is a fine example of the American detective genre.
Written in 1943 the play became an instant box office smash when it was made into a movie in 1951 and now the story is being told on the Village Theatre stage.
The play involves the unraveling of the baffling murder of the intriguing Laura Hunt … every man wanted her and every woman wanted to be her.
The moody play with a background of some of the best of early American jazz music takes you on a ride of cross and doublecross … lies … affairs … and a surprise ending sure to thrill audiences.
See if you can solve the case before the final curtain call.
Laura runs until October 30 at The Village Theatre located at 110 West 2nd Avenue in Qualicum Beach. Season tickets for the 2011-2012 season are now available.
