Directed by Senior Lecturer of Communications and Theater Arts James Wagoner, "The Real Inspector Hound" is a hilarious send-up of the classic murder mystery, and also a meta-theatrical piece in that it deals with criticism and the subjectivity of art.
Sophomore (and Baraboo High School grad) Austin Corey is playing Bird boot, and really likes the play "because it makes light of how critics play a big part in what people watch these days," and because "it has a good sense of comedy and word play. It's also cool that it uses a play within a play to tell the story."
Audience members can catch The Real Inspector Hound on Thursday April 27, Friday April 28, and Saturday April 29 at 7 p.m. in the R.G. Brown Theatre on campus. Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and $3 for UW-BSC students.
