The Real Inspector Hound + Black Comedy ()

Produced by

Soulpepper Theatre Company

Playwrights: Tom Stoppard and Peter Shaffer
Director: Jim Warren


The Michael Young Theatre


August 20th, 2008 – September 20th, 2008


The Real Inspector Hound, set in a theatre, is a delicious skewering of critics and the genre
of murder mysteries. Two critics are drawn into the world of a play that sends up a Mousetrap-style
mystery, taking on roles that fuse their fictional lives in the thriller with their real lives as critics.
InĀ Black Comedy the madness begins when the lights go out; except in this play the
actors see the darkness and you see the light. (
