THE STORY: At Monkswell Manor, news on the radio reports that a murder has recently taken place in London. Mollie and Giles Ralston, the young owners of the once-regal estate recently converted into a guesthouse, hardly notice the news. They are far too busy preparing for the arrival of their first guests and concerned that the heavy snowfalls may prevent the guests reaching their destination. As the guests arrive safely and the Manor becomes snowed in, a policeman arrives on skis suspecting that one of the seven occupants may be the killer. After a second murder occurs in the Manor, Sergeant Trotter is convinced. 

Suspects include the young married couple, a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired army major, an unexpected visitor who claims his car has run into a snowdrift and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. During his interrogation, Sergeant Trotter uncovers the many mysterious secrets of everyone present, as he tries to solve the murder in true Christie style.

The story takes place in NYC, circa 1963. Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. After a six day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie's loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does.


Neil Simon's comedy has been a favorite for many ... and, was a feature film, starring an all star cast or Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Mildred Natwick and Charles Boyer!


Nothing better than a great comedy to chase away the Winter doldrums!

"Congrats CJ, cast and crew! We thoroughly enjoyed the antics and suspense...well done and very very fun!" - Lisa C.

"Mel and I saw this last night, a truly enjoyable evening of 'who dunnit' and more smile emoticon Thank you CJ and the rest of this hard working cast."- Barb A.

"FABULOUS SHOW!!! The cast is amazing! I was guessing who done it till the very end!!!! Don't miss it! Great Show Branch River Theatre!" - Janet D.

TARTUFFE, a satirical comedy written by Moliere in the 17th century is about obsession, reverence, devotion, hypocrisy, love, self-indulgence and deceit. It’s no wonder why this play has stood the test of time as audiences today can still relate to this engaging tale of the centuries. Under the grand direction of Tyler Strickland, this extraordinary ensemble cleverly delivers a performance that will tickle your fancy! You surely won’t want to miss this extravagant show set in France during the lavish Baroque Era with all of its lace, rouge and golden decadence!Type your paragraph here.
