Playing at Lamplighters Community Theatre
5915 Severin Drive, La Mesa, CA 91942

Presented by Lamplighters Community Theatre

A leading metropolitan drama critic is led by an attractive production assistant into a recently discovered 19th century theatre. There, the critic will film a television interview for a documentary on the actor John Wilkes Booth, who once acted on those very boards. The critic, F.F. Charnick, notorious for his venomous reviews, visibly warms to the classy elegance of the British P.A. But no sooner has he downed a glass of wine than he falls drugged and unconscious.

When he awakens, he is firmly tied to a Shakesperian throne on the stage of the old theatre with an ominous woman intoning Lady Macbeth beside him. She now plans to carry out an elaborate plot to murder the man who virtually destroyed her and her husband's career. The torture carries on, inspiring blood curdling confessions from the critic and ending with the actors granting him a reprieve - but not before his most embarrassing revelations have been taped on video.
