Led by Rosie Thorpe and Ilya Parenteau, English Theatre Düsseldorf is an English-speaking platform for International professional artists. Based in Düsseldorf, Germany, we collaborate on anything from classical and contemporary plays to experimental pieces from resident playwrights, all originating from a range of cultures. We are so excited to perform to audiences who share our passion for English theatre in all its forms and to take our plays from Düsseldorf to other cities and beyond!
A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, when the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer's pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons....!
