University Players to stage thriller

University Players will present the thrilling and comedic mystery Nine Girls March 7 to 10 and 13 to 17 at Essex Hall Theatre.

It is a dark and stormy night when eight sorority girls meet at their mountain clubhouse, and discover that their ninth member has been murdered. Their quirky banter makes you forget the seriousness of the situation, and none suspect that one of them could be the killer—until Alice discovers a clue and confides in the wrong girl. Will the girls figure out the true identity of the killer? And how far will the killer go to cover her tracks?

Modern comedy to wrap up University Players season

University Players completes its 53rd season with Neil LaBute’s modern comedy Some Girl(s), March 29 to April 1 and April 11 to 15 at Essex Hall Theatre.

This hysterical comedy follows “Guy” – a magazine writer about to be married – to four hotel rooms in four cities, where he meets with four past lovers. He hopes to clear the air between them, which proves difficult considering he fled these relationships years ago and used them as material for his articles. Can this commitment-phobe warm his cold feet without getting burned by his old flames?
