IVT to present 'Postmortem' dinner theater

Published: Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

Indian Valley Theatre is preparing for its annual dinner theater in February. This year they will present Ken Ludwig’s murder-mystery comedy “Postmortem.”

Bob and Jeannette Wright of Wright Insurance Agency LLC in Sandwich are sponsoring the show. Their donation allows IVT to purchase the rights from the publishing house, Samuel French, thus offsetting the costs that go into putting on the production.

“Postmortem” is a classic example of the whodunit genre. It has all the elements audiences have come to love and expect: devious characters, witty dialogue, brain-teasing plot twisters, glamour, dark secrets, a little bit of romance, a little bit of scandal and a whole lot of suspense.

The story is based on the somewhat strange life of William Gillette, one of the most popular American actors of the early 20th century, who pioneered the role of Sherlock Holmes on the stage. The story takes place at the famed Gillette Castle in Connecticut.

Performances for “Postmortem” will be Feb. 22 through 24. For more information on the show and upcoming ticket sales, visit or call the producer, Christine Roe, at 630-631-2323.
