Rehearsal for Murder

Playwright Alex Dennison has a plan in Rehearsal for Murder. It's the anniversary of his fiancée's supposed suicide, and he's gathered all the actors from her only performance for a staged reading of his new play. But there's a twist to the ending: It reveals his fiancée's murderer. "Unusual form, a mystery," he tells the assembled suspects. "You take the audience by the hand, and you lead them in the wrong direction. They trust you, and you betray them! All in the name of surprise." In this case, it's also in the name of revenge. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. January 31 and February 7. Through February 13. Ace Theatre, 17011 Bamwood. For information, call 281-587-1020 or visit www.acetheatre.org. $13 to $15.
Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 22. Continues through Feb. 13, 2010
