SOMETHING’S AFOOT
Book, Music and Lyrics by James McDonald, David Vos, and Robert Gerlach
Additional Music by Ed Linderman

A zany, entertaining musical that takes a satirical poke at Agatha Christie mysteries and musical styles of the English music hall of the ’30s. Ten people are stranded in an isolated English country house during a raging thunderstorm. One by one they’re picked off by cleverly fiendish devices. As the bodies pile up in the library, the survivors frantically race to uncover the identity and motivation of the cunning culprit.
