Guests become sleuths at a one-of-a-kind outdoor performance at 1 p.m. Saturday and Oct. 20 on the boardwalk of the Cranberry Glades Botanical Area.
The Pocahontas Opera House will present The Mystery of Gauley Marsh, as written by G.D. McNeill in the historical novel, "The Last Forest." The tale describes a 19th century jury's trip to Gauley Marsh as part of the murder trial of James Brooden. The performance is adapted from a radio play produced by Allegheny Mountain Radio and West Virginia Public Broadcasting's Larry Groce. Emily Newton directs.
The audience participates in the jury as the mystery unfolds. Lobelia fiddler Paolo Marks provides musical accompaniment.
Admission is free, but seating is limited. Call 304-653-4826 for reservations.
