It’s the Roaring ‘20’s and wealthy Chicago socialite Vera Riche, widow of Randolph N. Riche, the Wilmette Pork King, is throwing a party at her Door county vacation home. The festivities have barely gotten underway when Vera, and her secretary, Rod Furrent, find the body of gangster Willie “The Wiener” DeBlotto in front of the living room fireplace. Willie, who got his nickname after a shootout with a dachschund, has been bludgeoned to death, probably by someone attending the party. Vera decides the only person who can solve the crime and get her party back on track is “that famous Belgian detective.” She wants Hercule Poirot. She gets Petey Poirot, great-nephew of the famous sleuth, who lives in the Door County community of Namur. The Belgian Detective revolves around Petey’s efforts to uncover the murderer. The prime suspects are: Riche, Furrent; Riche’s daughter and son-in-law Lulu and Rudy DePrey; her niece Miranda Vacuous and Miranda’s finance Bob Wright. Petey, who’s been taking detective lessons by mail, is helped in unraveling the “ball of worms” by his apprentice sleuth and neighbor, Billy Goodwun.
Performances for “The Belgian Detective” are scheduled for June 13-29, directed by Renee Kujawski. For more information, call 920-818-0816 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
