The Lodger Header_dates

Directed by JESS CHAYES


This spring, Northern Stage will present Mud Season Mystery: The Lodger, a witty new adaptation of the classic mystery, created for Zoom and performed live each night. Closing out Northern Stage’s 2020-21 season, Mud Season Mystery: The Lodger will be performed live on Zoom starting April 14 through May 2, 2021

A lodger arrives at a ramshackle London boarding house as news of a murderer sweeps through town. He fits the description– but is he guilty? And can we trust our instincts? Grab your friends and join Ronnie, an obsessive mystery fan and your host, as Ronnie leads you on a journey through this tantalizing tale and your own expectations. The Lodger, adapted by Brenda Withers (Jordan), uses suspenseful storytelling to engage the audience in a live, interactive, communal experience guaranteed to entertain and provoke.
