Metro Theatre is excited to debut the Vancouver Premiere of MURDER ON RESERVE – a comedy mystery written by Thomas Hischak and directed by Don Briard on our stage, January 19 – February 9.

Things are a little too quiet, even for the Reference Section of the public library.  Crotchety old Faulkner Seaton has been strangled while the dusty old library was open. Most puzzling of all is the fact that nobody in the place saw or heard a thing.

The big city cops are called in. Their investigations reveal a motley crew of oddball suspects, a very limited set of motives and little evidence.   The characters are familiar —no mobsters or spies; no famous sleuth; no tycoons or famous authors—just people you might know. Seaton had terrorized generations of young people, and was thoroughly disliked by everyone—but why was he killed in such a public place?  What motive could possibly justify such a risk?  And why didn’t the town have anywhere to get a decent cup of coffee?

Director Don Briard comments, “The core of Murder on Reserve is about the characters and their evolution from ordinary to vivid, believable and interesting suspects. It develops as the cops set a trap to catch the murderer that results in a thrilling and revealing conclusion.”

Tickets are $25 Adult or $22 Senior/Student with a special 2 for $37 every Thursday.

Tickets can be reserved by calling the Box Office 604 266 7191 or purchased on line TICKETS
