Back by popular demand, Author Kerry Greenwood's sassy but classy sleuth Phryne Fisher makes a triumphant return in Mysteryscape Chamber Theatre's performance of Come, Sable Night, Thursday, March 5, 7 pm at Mysteryscape.

In this tale of women scorned and, of course, murder committed, a local lothario's behavior towards women is regarded as outrageous. Lawrence has been having a fling with Diane but dumps her to take up with her willful younger sister, Violet. Diane is infuriated. And there is Alexandra who's loved Lawrence for years. His passing her up once again is the last straw. Are this cad's days numbered?
