Lafayette, LA- Cité des Arts announces production of Tom Stoppard's comedy “The Real Inspector Hound,” opening the first week of October.

“The Real Inspector Hound" is a one-hour, one-act play written by Tom Stoppard. The plot follows two theatre critics, Moon and Birdboot, as they review a ludicrous set-up of a country house murder mystery. Unfortunately for them, they soon become involved in the action.

“The Real Inspector Hound,” much like Stoppard's earlier play “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead,” breezily examines the ideas of fate and free will, while exploring the themes of the ‘play within a play.’ The play has been described as “wickedly funny.” Critics remarked that as a murder mystery “it all fits together with a sort of demented clockwork precision.” “The whole thing is tragic and hilarious, and very, very carefully constructed.” 

The cast features Danny Ladmirault and Rudy Eisenzopf as two ill-fated theatre critics. Both actors have impressive resumes as professional television actors. Lauren Greene Whyte, as Cynthia, has also produced/directed several classical comedies at Cité. The cast is rounded out by Lafayette theater veterans Nina McCune, Gus Fontenot, Jade Peart, Edward deMahy and Roger Peak.
