What mysteries lurk behind such an innocent face?

What mysteries lurk behind such an innocent face?

(Delta, ON) What are animals to do? The game’s afoot, and things have certainly turned fowl, um, uh, “foul”.

In a desperate cycle of murder, betrayal and love, we explore the deepest of relationships between the most innocent looking house pets. Who would ever suspect there could be complications for a hamster and a rabbit that just happen to cohabit, or the havoc wreaked in a fish tank by a gifted member of the school. What about the trials and tribulations faced by dogs and cats facing death at a city pound?

In a humourous satire written by Robert Watson, no holds are barred. And the Rideau Islands and Lakes Theatre School (RILTS) is delighted to present two showings on March 29 and 30.

“What do our pets get up to when we aren’t around to see them?” asks the poster. A trip to the Old Town Hall in Delta will help to answer that age old question.

The play runs as a dinner show on Saturday, March 29 at 6:30 pm, with tickets at $15 apiece. It may also be seen as a stand alone matinee on Sunday, March 30 at 2:00 pm, with tickets selling for $7.50. Due to the mature themes presented, it is not suggested as good entertainment for children under the age of 16.

To purchase tickets or for more information, please call 613-349-5151.

“The cat’s out of the bag,” says the Cambridge Centre for the Arts. “Behind every pet lies a mystery …”
