The Cannon Theatre presents The Real Inspector Hound, directed by Maren Caulfield, a British comedy by Tom Stoppard that parodies the works of Agatha Christie.

The Real Inspector Hound follows rival theatre critics, Birdboot and Moon, who are reviewing a performance at a London theatre. The top reviewer, Higgs, is missing, leaving Moon to get tangled in the blurred lines of this play-within-a-play with his fellow critic. The body on stage turns out to be someone they know, and the two are swept into investigating the murderous actions of an escaped madman.

Show times are March 17, 18, 24, 25, 31 and April 1 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees on March 26 and April 2 at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are available at, and are $25 for adults, and $20 for students/seniors.
