A Shot in the Dark

Event Date:  Repeats every day until Sat Jan 24 2015 . January 9, 2015 (All day) - January 24, 2015 (All day) Prince George's Little Theater presents "A Shot in the Dark." A good hearted, guileless child of nature is hauled before the magistrate on a charge of murder, having been found unconscious, nude, and clutching a gun, with her lover dead beside her. What is most shocking to the magistrate is the complete frankness with which she describes her life as a parlor maid and her affairs with both the dead chauffeur and her aristocratic employer. She is so ingenious that the magistrate, at the risk of his juridical neck, decides that she could not have committed the murder.
