Randall J. Gray’s new mystery, “The Lake House Project,” is now playing at the Hudson Guild Theatre. Presented by Stages Of Gray Theatre they show is directed by Gray and features Jay Antonos, Robert Sherry and Jesse Welch.
Byron is a famed writer of best-selling mystery novels. His reputation is damaged when his accountant, Chris, lets slip details of Byron’s less-than-secure financial situation while in a casual conversation with a gossip columnist.
Byron has invited Chris to join him and Byron’s assistant/protégé Josh at Byron’s idyllic lakeside retreat for a weekend. Having passed out after a heavy meal, Chris awakens to find himself next to Josh’s bloodied body. Byron accuses Chris of raping and murdering Josh, but Chris has no recollection of those events.
Crime has been committed, but who, what and how are not so easily discerned. Lovers of crime stories and mysteries will enjoy solving the puzzles of “The Lake House Project.”
“The Lake House Project” debuted in 2013 in east Pasadena at Stage Of Gray Theatre Company’s former venue.
Gray’s career has spanned over three dozen years. He has directed over 100 shows locally and internationally. His most recent credits include the A.R. Gurney comedy “The Fourth Wall” and his own musicals “Doctor, Doctor!” and “Ready for the Storm.”
