Produced by Iain Macpherson
Tony and Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard’s mystery parody is in the form of a play within a play within a play. A comic spoof of the whodunits popularized by Agatha Christie, The Real Inspector Hound blends a secluded English country manor house, ominous radio reports of a criminal on the loose, suspicious visitors, a relative with a shady past, a dead body, and fourth walls broken down left, right, and center. It’s a riotous evening of immense proportions that answers the ultimate question: Who is the real Inspector Hound?
The Real Inspector Hound was two weeks from opening in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the theatre to shut down. The cast and crew remained committed to this show for 18 months, picking back up with rehearsals in August 2021. Sadly, another pandemic wave forced the show’s cancellation.
Pull-Tight is thankful to the cast and crew of this show for helping to keep our organization’s spirit alive.
