THE DEAD OF WINTER – what is it and why is it happening?

The Dead of Winter is an original script written by Aaron Niemuth and Laura Trezise.  It’s an Elizabethan murder mystery utilizing the classic ‘trapped with an unknown killer’ scenario.  There’s an engagement party at a remote Keep, and a snowstorm sets in.  Many guests flee the party ahead of the storm, but not everyone is able to leave in time and must remain in the Keep until the storm subsides.  Suddenly, a scream rings through the Keep – the charming and bold Constance Claybourne has been killed!  As the story unfolds and we learn more about how Constance is connected to those trapped together, the question goes from “why was she killed” to “how in the world has she managed to remain alive so long?”  There are some twists, some turns and plenty of suspects.. not to mention THREE DIFFERENT KILLERS!  Yep, we’ll be performing the three different endings on a rotating schedule, so you should come out and see them all!
