Can You Solve the Mystery of Edwin Drood? See for Yourself During This Performance on Friday

This Friday, January 10th, Tapestry Players presents a pleasant Broadway revival of the Tony Award-winning musical by Rupert Holmes, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. A hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives, The Mystery of Edwin Drood is fun for the whole family! The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name.

In small-town of Chesterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? His leering romantic rival, John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon? Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous?

Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote. The witty and tuneful score contains such numbers as "There You Are," "Moonfall," Perfect Strangers" and "Off To The Races."

Telling stories and building community is the mission of St. Luke's United Methodist Church’s very own theatrical production company, Tapestry Players. Tapestry Players is based in the Rotunda Theater of St. Luke's in the heart of Houston.

This charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover. General admission is $25.00 and $15.00 for students with a valid ID. Tickets are on sale online at www.stlukesmethodist.org or at the door (pending availability).
