Spiders Web - Inspector_Clarissa"Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive," says Clarissa, the charming diplomat's wife and main murder suspect, in Agatha Christie's Spider's Web which opens Friday, January 15, 2010 and runs through February 21, 2010 at Lakewood Theatre Company. 


The Story: Clarissa Hailsham-Brown (Lauren Bair), married to Henry (Garland Lyons), is entertaining her guardian, Sir Rowland Delehaye (Scott Parker), their friend Hugo Birch (John Morrison), and a young man named Jeremy Warrender (Mark Merritt). When Henry's ex-wife's new husband, Oliver (David Burnett), shows up threatening to take Henry's daughter, Pippa (Amber Mitchell), Clarissa's evening begins to quickly fall apart.

The discovery of a body makes things even more complicated. Henry is planning a secret high-level meeting of diplomats that evening, and it just wouldn't do to have the police investigating a murder when the government officials arrive. Clarissa's overactive imagination begins to cook up a complicated alibi to protect Pippa (who she suspects is the murderer). Her "web" of lies starts to unravel when a local Constable (Nathan P. Gale) and a Scotland Yard Inspector (Gary Powell) show up at her doorstep prompted by an anonymous call. The gardener, Mildred Peake (Jamie M. Rea) and the butler, Elgin (Sean Knight), round out the list of suspects in this classic Agatha Christie mystery.
