Husband-and-Wife Hatchet Job coming to the Ennotville Library Stage

It’s going to get a little intriguing in Ennotville this October.

Grinder Productions is pleased to present Marriage is Murder, a mystery-comedy by Nick Hall as the first show of the fall and winter season at the Ennotville Library.

This murderously funny comedy is about ex-spouses Paul and Polly Butler, two murder mystery writers that penned a few bestsellers when they were married, but have failed to make much use of their talents on their own. The secret to their success (and perhaps their marriage) was that they tested out the murders in their books… on each other!

This play is filled with comic twists and turns right up to the very end. It is part murder-mystery, part farce and part reality, with both characters walking an extremely fine line between “acting” their murderous ideas and actually carrying them out.

Starring in this show are Eric and Julie Goudie, in their first show together as husband and wife. While they may not share Paul and Polly’s animosity towards each other just yet both actors can sympathise with their character’s plights:

“Yes, she does have a lot of little sayings that I find annoying sometimes,” says Eric.
“Christmas to Murgatroyd, I do not!” retorts Julie.

The show runs October 15th, 16th and 17th at 8pm at the Ennotville Library, with an additional 2pm Saturday matinee. Call 519-780-7593 for tickets or online at
