Dickens for a Day. Charles Dickens didn't finish his 15th novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. So Rupert Holmes wrote a musical in which the audience chooses the murderer of young Edwin. Was it dastardly John Jasper, hot tempered  Neville Landless, or seven others? Holmes set the piece in a bawdy London music hall. OnStage Playhouse and Turning Tydes' co-producltion had some opening night glitches, probably overcome by now, but was entertaining nonetheless.  Worth a try.
