Laura

Last night was opening night for the murder mystery, Laura, presented by the Columbian Players at the SJC Theater. The play is set in 1948 and has a small cast, with only seven characters. The plot has several surprises and I was not able to guess who the killer was. If you want to know more, go to the play.
It is a fairly short play with three acts, all taking place in the same room. Starting time is 7:30 and the cost of admission is $5.00.

One thing that is rather funny is that the theater is a non-smoking facility, but several of the actors smoke. (And it is quite amazing how quickly the smell of the smoke reaches the middle seats of the theater.) Young people today may not realize how universal smoking was after World War II.

I loved the play too. It was well done in acting, costumes, and sets. Hurray for the SJC Theatre Program and Director, John Raye.
