"Go Back for Murder" Opens at Summer Theater
The Summer Company will be performing its final show of the 2017 season, "Go Back for Murder," directed by John E. Lane, Jr..
After a wrongly convicted woman dies in prison, it is up to her daughter to recreate the scene of the crime and exonerate her memory. And years later, after receiving a letter from beyond the grave, Carla Crale believes her mother, who died in prison, was wrongly convicted of her father’s murder. In a passionate attempt to clear her name, she persuades those present on the day of her father’s death to return to the scene of the crime and ‘go back’ 15 years to recount their version of events.
The show runs August 17 - 27, Thursday through Saturday. shows begin at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.. All shows will be performed at the Genesius Theater at Duquesne University adjacent to the Mary Pappert School of Music.
