WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Publick Theatre Boston, a resident company of the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA), presents Tom Stoppard's The Real Inspector Hound. Diego Arciniegas directs. Characters and conventions collide in Stoppard's layered and witty indictment of the English "whodunnit", merging murder mystery clichés with a satirical send up of insouciant newspaper critics that results in a hilarious cautionary tale for all who put their ego ahead of Art. Moon and Birdboot, two mediocre theatre critics, have gone to review yet another murder mystery, set in the parlour of "charming but isolated" Muldoon Manor. When the fog rolls in, it becomes clear that more than one person has ulterior motives for being at the show. Reality and theatricality become intertwined - then indistinguishable - as doubt falls on whether or not a play, or the perfect murder, might be in progress.
