Author Donna Jodhan, in collaboration with members of the Glenvale Players, the CCB, and the CNIB, presents "The Demise of Greedy Gumbo."

You are invited to have dinner at the Court House while experiencing the Canadian justice system at work.

Written and produced by Author Donna Jodhan, this mystery promises to keep you at the edge of your seat until the very end. It is filled with suspense, twists and turns, and is sprinkled with heavy doses of humour.

It all takes place in a lower Federal Court with Judge Jill Jadestone closely questioning three suspects for the demise of Greedy Gumbo. Judge Jill is assisted by her top Crimes Investigator Commander Chip Sanderson.

The crimes investigator has carried out extensive investigations and has brought three suspects before a grand jury to be examined by Judge Jill. The grand jury must decide which of the three suspects needs to be indicted.

The grand jury is made up of about six persons who are all members of the audience. They will be chosen at random, similar to how a jury is chosen in the normal scheme of things.


Murray Powel - Chip Sanderson as Crimes Investigator
Kamini Rodhan - Marcia Estrada as the Bailiff
Orly Shamir - Maxine Davinier as Suspect 1
Thea Ramsay - Lucy Rebbering as Suspect 2
Simon Qiggaittuq - Byron Steel as Suspect 3
Donna Jodhan - As Judge Jill Jadestone

You may choose to attend both dinner and the mystery evening at a cost of $20, or just the mystery evening at a cost of $15.

Whichever option you choose, please let us know no later than February 28th 2016 so that we can make room for you either at the dinner table and/or in our audience.
