Vintage Theatre presents Sleuth

February 2 – March 11, 2018

Vintage Theatre and Spotlight Theatre presents SLEUTH (by Anthony Shaffer), February 2 through March 11, 2018. When mystery writer Andrew Wyke invites his wife’s lover to his country estate, a battle of wits quickly turns into a sinister and deadly game of cat and mouse. The ultimate game of cat-and-mouse is played out in a cozy English country house owned by celebrated mystery writer, Andrew Wyke. Invited guest Milo Tindle, a young rival who shares not only Wyke’s love of the game but also his wife, has come to lay claim. Revenge is devised and murders plotted as the two

plan the ultimate whodunit.

The cast includes Mark Rubald* as Andrew Wyke and Brandon Palmer as Milo Tindle and is directed by Bernie Cardell.
