The Catskill Community Players present The Real Inspector Hound, a one-act comedy by Tom Stoppard, at the Wieting Theatre in Worcester, on Friday, November 18th, Saturday, November 19th at 8:00 pm, preceded by a pre-show Dinner offered at the Worcester Inn, and Sunday November 20th at 2:00 p.m., with a post-show dinner at the Inn. This one-act play, actually a play within a play, revolves around two theatre critics, played by Gary Koutnik and Charlie Reiman, who are watching a play which is a send-up of a classic “whodunit”. A dead body is found at Muldoon Manor in Essex, the radio announces a madman is on the loose, and soon Inspector Hound (played by Dr. Ben Friedell) shows up at the scene of the crime. But is he the real Inspector Hound?
Diana Friedell is directing and producing the play and comments, “this is the funniest show I’ve ever directed, and this will be the 2nd time I’ve directed it- last time was in 1987, also at the Wieting Theatre.” Several actors are reprising the exact same role they played in 1987, including Dr. Friedell as “Inspector Hound”, Gary Koutnik as the critic, “Birdboot,” Sam Goodyear as the Radio voice, and Abbey Koutnik as “Lady Cynthia Muldoon”. Rounding out the cast are Scott West, reprising his role as “Simon”, the mysterious stranger, Charlie Reiman as “Moon”, Alyssa Christman playing Miss Drudge, the maid, Cassandra Miller as “Felicity Cunningham”, and Joe Mungavin, playing Magnus Muldoon.
There are six menu choices for dinner, being offered by Chef Jack at the Worcester Inn, Dinner price includes dessert and salad; bar and gratuities not included.
