The Real Inspector Hound
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Desdemona Chiang, MFA '09
We are thrilled to welcome back UW alumna director Desdemona Chiang as she takes on Tom Stoppard's hilarious1968 play-within-a-play. Since graduating in 2009, Desdemona founded the critically acclaimed Azeotrope theatre in Seattle and is currently the Associate Artistic Director of Impact Theatre in Berkeley.
The Real Inspector Hound is an Agatha Christie-style murder-mystery set at an isolated country manor. Theatre critics Moon and Birdboot are swept into the whodunit they are viewing and must navigate the satirical trappings set by mysterious strangers, a bitter love triangle and, of course, a madman on the loose!
Check out the sneak peak video above and then come watch our third-year graduate students showcase their comedic acting skills.
