The Butler Did It!
April twentieth will kick off two weekends of mystery, intrigue, and murder at Russell County, Kentucky’s Star Theater with the theatrical production of The Butler Did It. The Butler Did It is a rip rolling cozy mystery with lighthearted comedy undertones set in 1930’s England. Directed by the renowned Brad Barnes, known for directing other Star productions such as The Boarding House, along with The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and staring Joe Edmond, of The Little Mermaid, and Benjamin Foster, of Midnight Dreary: a Requiem for Edgar Allen Poe, and an ensemble of other incredible actors, The Butler Did It promises to be one of the best evenings you can spend this April in Kentucky Theater.
Set in the manor home of Colonel Nigel Covington (Benjamin Foster), The Butler Did It forms it’s narrative around the murder of the Covington’s next door neighbor, Trevor Barstow (Jordan Wilson) on the evening of the dinner party celebrating the recent successful book release of family friend, Edwina Cory (Mary Susan Judd). When the Covington’s butler Jenkins (Joe Edmond) comes under suspicion of committing the crime, it’s up to him to put the evidence together and find out who truly killed Trevor Barstow. In the play’s final harrowing act, all the twists and turns are finally revealed and why the poor bugger was done in may just surprise you the most!
