The impresario Peregrine Jay has fulfilled a long-cherished dream: He now owns the Dolphin Theatre, and has restored it to its former glory. To celebrate the re-opening, a no-expenses-spared production of The Glove, a new play about the discovery of a true Shakespearean accessory. London’s chattering classes are abuzz with gossip about the theatre, rumors about Peregrine, critiques of the play. But when murder takes center-stage, everyone gets very quiet.
WhoDunnits is a discussion group devoted to mysteries and following a yearlong program of books and movies around a single topic. We'll have featured titles some months, and do themes with title suggestions other months. We'll also hold occasional movie showings. This year we're taking a look at the Golden Age of Mysteries, the period between the wars that saw an explosion of cozy British country house murders, dark detection by damaged detectives, and noble amateurs whimsically solving crimes. This era produced mystery legends like Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, Dashiell Hammett, Ngaio Marsh -- and even influenced writers working today.
