SIMON BRETT TO COMMIT "A CRIME IN RHYME"
Stage Shadows Mystery Theatre Co., Inc. "Radio Like You've Never Seen It!"™ is delighted to present SIMON BRETT, celebrated British mystery writer and actor, in his one-man "whodunit" entitled A CRIME IN RHYME, as Stage Shadows' next live recording on Friday evening, April 28, at 7 P.M. at The Museum of Television & Radio, 25 West 52nd Street, in midtown Manhattan.
Mr. Brett will play all characters, including the Duke, the Dowager Duchess, her Sister, the Butler, the Cook, the Chauffeur, the (highly suspect) Count Volensky, and amateur sleuth Lord Raneleigh De Vere. Mr. Brett also performs the sound effects. Literary agent Donald Maass will interview the multi-talented Mr. Brett for Stage Shadows' regularly featured segment "The Backstair Case."
In his spoof of the crime novel, Mr. Brett sends up the genre in which he himself excels. Of his 50-plus books, over half are internationally successful mysteries, including the Charles Paris, Mrs. Pargeter and Fethering series. His psychological thriller, "A Shock to the System", was nominated for an Edgar Award by Mystery Writers of America and made into a film starring Michael Caine. Another of his thrillers, "Dead Romantic" was also made into a film. His play "Silhouette" toured England in 1997. Mr. Brett's on-going and extensive radio career includes producing, writing and acting for the BBC. As producer and writer, Mr. Brett was responsible for The Lord Peter Wimsey series starring Ian Carmichael, and the first radio version of Douglas Adams' "A Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy".
