Chelsea Players presented the comic murder mystery, The Murder Room by Jack Sharkey, May 5, 6, 11, 12 & 13.

This play spoofs the Agatha Christie genre. Set in England, the play revolves around Edward Hollister, a prominent member of the community, whose very recent second marriage is to a woman who might be a gold digger or a fortune hunter or...worse! Hollister is awaiting his daughter’s arrival home after her graduation from college in America, but he disappears before she arrives. Coincidentally their cat disappears after drinking some hot cocoa meant for Hollister. Constable Howard, along with several other wacky characters, tries to crack the case of the missing Hollister.

The play was directed by George Blair. Cast members are Fergus Milton of Westerly, Ellen Kellie of Willington, Erica Strickland of Waterford, Richard Weingart of Franklin, Juliana Drainville of Preston, and Brandon Speight of Lisbon.
