Opening Night at the Vulcan by Ngaio Marsh Part Two

We discuss chapters 6-7 of Opening Night, or Night at the Vulcan by Ngaio Marsh. As our murder finally takes place, Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn finally shows up to solve the murder of Bennington, a crime seemingly copycatting the murder that previously closed the Vulcan Theatre years ago. With only a couple of chapters of clues, can Herds pull through using symbolism as a weapon and take his points? We also speak with Chris Hamilton, President of the Hunters Hill Theatre, about crime fiction’s ties to the theatre, as well as Hunters Hill Theatre’s production of Agatha Christie’s legendary play The Mousetrap.
