Written by Leslie Sands, directed by Jon Terrill, tech directed by Mary Butler Fraser. Presented in special arrangement by Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. The action takes place at “The Cresswell Arms,” an old coaching-house in a remote English village. Many years before, a kidnapping (and perhaps murder) took place in the town, but the policeman assigned to the case by Scotland Yard, Inspector Frost, failed to solve the crime. He has returned to try again, only to find that he has become a very unwelcome guest. As he reopens his investigation, he encounters suspicion and even hostility, as it becomes increasingly clear that he is facing a conspiracy of silence and the wish of the townspeople to leave the past shrouded in mystery. But Frost presses on, with results that are both startling and disquieting, and which lead to a surprise ending in which justice is indeed served after all – but in a manner more ironic and severe than any formal court of law could mete out. Tickets: $17 adults, $14 students, available at 507-451-0764, at the box office, or at LTO will be following the State of MN guidelines of required facial coverings and physical distancing, and temperatures will be taken upon arrival.
