Susan Swayne and the Bewildered Bride Play Through Dec. 16
December 16, 2018
$15 – $25
If Sherlock Holmes were Mary Poppins, she might be just like Susan Swayne and the Bewildered Bride Cincinnati Play.
Susan Swayne loves few things more than good manners, a sharp blade, and the challenge of bringing criminals to justice in the streets of Victorian London. But when a rival threatens her position in the Society of Lady Detectives, she begins to unravel a sordid little mystery that puts both her deductive reasoning and her decorum to the test!
With razor-sharp wit and even sharper blades, Susan Swayne and the Bewildered Bride by Reina Hardy is the next swashbuckling adventure to take over the Know MainStage.
Tickets for Susan Swayne and the Bewildered Bride Play are $25 – $35 and can be purchased online or by calling 513-300-5669 (KNOW). When available, Rush Tickets are available ten minutes before curtain for $10. Free walk-up tickets are available on Wednesdays as part of Know’s Welcome Experience. Advance reservations to Welcome Experiment performances are $5.
Directed by Know Associate Artistic Director Tamara Winters, this unconventional take on the classic Victorian whodunit is part action-adventure, part queer sex farce, and part contemporary spin on the comedic chaos of Gilbert & Sullivan. Add in a vicious little murder mystery and comically compromising circumstances, and you have just the tonic for what ails you this holiday season.
In a time when murder and mayhem lurk amongst London’s ubiquitous fog, Susan Swayne patrols the night, ready to deliver nefarious ne’er-do-wells both swift justice and a stern talking-to. After some vigorous fisticuffs thanks to a mistaken identity, Swayne makes the acquaintance of Isabelle Fontaine-Kite, a young bride desperately searching for her missing husband Eric.
Swayne invites Isabelle into the inner sanctum of the Society of Lady Detectives, and that’s when the trouble really begins…
