Murder mystery ‘Busman’s Honeymoon’ opens at Taproot Theatre May 17

Taproot Theatre presents the Dorothy L. Sayers murder mystery “Busman’s Honeymoon” from May 17 through June 24 on the Jewell Mainstage. It is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Newlyweds Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane discover a body in the basement of their country honeymoon hideaway – murder or accident? Alibi or lie? While the supporting cast of characters complicate this confusing case, Peter and Harriet must decide if the pursuit of truth outweighs the pursuit of happiness.
