The Mystery of Edwin Drood

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 3 p.m. Continues through June 21 2015

When Dickens died, he left a mystery in his wake. His final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, remained unfinished — until Rupert Holmes came along. Holmes’ musical adaptation follows the players of the Music Hall Royale as they perform the incomplete tale, allowing the audience to choose the ending. For years, the continuation of this work has been a pastime for writers. In 1873, painter Thomas James claimed he wrote the ending while channeling Dickens (even Arthur Conan Doyle believed him). May Dickens be with you as you complete this tale of opium dens, love triangles and murder.
