The Story

CLIFFHANGER by James Yaffe

September 15 – October 6 / Sunday Matinees September 23rd & 30th

In this humorous 1980’s thriller, a mild mannered philosophy professor hits a colleague with the best of Socrates. This sets off a series of exciting twists as he and his wife try to hide the murder from the college police. Complications arise from a spying undergrad, who just wants a better grade!

Mingling suspense and humour, this ingeniously plotted thriller follows all the unexpected twists and turns that result when a seemingly mild-mannered professor of philosophy is driven to apparent murder to protect his reputation and career
