Suspicious is being presented as one of six one-act plays selected for The Ellerslie Festival of One Act Plays 2019. The play run-time is around 25 to 35 minutes.

The Play
An absurdist, tongue and cheek look at the classic dramatized murder mystery.

Itís 1958, England and Colonel Colman is set to welcome a small group of oddball guests to his home for dinner, but something goes terribly wrong and no one makes it out alive. And, it seems that the investigation is going nowhere.
