COPAKE, NY —The Two Of Us Productions, the award winning theater company based in Columbia County NY, is pleased to present their Virtual Live-Staged Reading for 2022.  Our 2nd installment is two exciting radio dramas from Suspense Theater: “The ABC Murders” and “August Heat”.  This performance is being presented on Saturday evening February 26th, 2022 at 7:00pm in collaboration with Friends of Copake Grange. 

In “The ABC Murders”  we meet Alexander Bonepart Cust, a remarkable character, created by England’s noted thriller author, Agatha Christie.  A mild-mannered character whose initials were ABC.   And ABC was stamped also upon the large railway timetable he always carried.  But there was nothing so odd about that detail since no traveler in the British Isles would dream of planning a journey without consulting this famous railway schedule, the ABC. 

In “August Heat”  we are introduced to James Clarence Withencroft, who has been irresistibly driven to draw a picture of a criminal in the dock, immediately after the judge had pronounced sentence.  The picture is remarkably detailed, but he does not know this man!   Walking on a hot summer day, James suddenly comes face-to-face with the man in the picture! 

To learn the rest of these thrilling stories you’ll have to R.S.V.P to www.TheTwoOfUsProductions.org and then see these thrilling dramas in the comfort of your own home on Saturday night February 26th, 2022.
