Final Weekend to SeeĀ ‘The Westing Game’

“The Westing Game” play, based on the Newbery award winning novel by Ellen Raskin, adapted by Darian Lindle and directed by Angela Miloro-Hansen, runs through March 30 at the Geauga Theater, 101 Water St. in Chardon. The murder mystery is filled with interesting characters, chaos and comedy that will keep theatergoers guessing until the end.

The unsuspecting residents of Sunset Towers are summoned to the reading of a mysterious will, only to find themselves locked in a thrilling game, as they must discover who is responsible for killing an eccentric millionaire. Through blizzards, bombings and unlikely alliances, the game begins. The only people who hold all the clues are one Westing heir and the audience.
