Suspicious is being presented as one of six one-act plays selected for The Ellerslie Festival of One Act Plays 2019. The play run-time is around 25 to 35 minutes.
An absurdist, tongue and cheek look at the classic dramatized murder mystery.
Itís 1958, England and Colonel Colman is set to welcome a small group of oddball guests to his home for dinner, but something goes terribly wrong and no one makes it out alive. And, it seems that the investigation is going nowhere.

Commence Monday 17 June 2019 and are week evenings and Sunday afternoons.
Thursday 22 August to Saturday 31 August 2019 - 5 performances of each play including 1 matinee.
