Possum Point Players brings the thriller "Laura" to the Possum Hall stage weekends through Sunday, Feb. 9.

"Laura" is a murder mystery whodunit written in the 1940s, but it could have been written for today’s “CSI.” Laura Hunt started as a daring and ambitious secretary at an advertising agency and worked her way up to become a top executive, but something has happened, and Detective Mark McPherson must reconstruct the life of the alluring Laura, now a murder victim. In the process, he falls in love with the person Laura was. Here is the secret of Laura's death... and her life.

Shows are at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, Jan. 31, Feb. 1, 7 and 8; and 2 p.m., Sundays, Feb. 2 and 9, at Possum Hall, 441 Old Laurel Road, Georgetown. Tickets are $18 for adults, $17 for students and seniors. Call 302-856-4560 or go to

"Laura" is presented by special arrangement of Dramatists Play Service Inc.
