WHAT AUDIENCES SHOULD KNOW
THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD
Recommended for ages 12 and up. Contains mild references to adult themes and language. The play is full of verbal fun and energy. As a courtesy to our guests, children under the age of 5 will not be admitted.
The play is ribald and vaudevillian, using a lot of innuendo. Two uses of sh*t.
There is a murder and some physical fighting, as well as references to burglary and violence for profit.
Reference is made to prostitution.
Drinking, Drugs, and Smoking
There is an opium den and some drinking.
