4th Line Theatre in Millbrook has announced a brand new off-season production for Christmas 2019 called The Fool of Cavan: A Christmas Caper.
Written by Lindy Finlan and directed by Kim Blackwell, The Fool of Cavan: A Christmas Caper is a Nancy Drew-style mystery. Set in the 1960s in Millbrook, a church congregation is divided when props and costumes for the upcoming Christmas concert go missing. The Needlers, a band comprised of local young people, are accused of being the culprits. Tensions mount and The Needlers take to the streets of Millbrook to solve the mystery and clear their names.

Like previous 4th Line off season productions, The Fool of Cavan: A Christmas Caper will take audiences on an adventure through the streets of Millbrook as they try to solve the mystery.
The production will have a 10-performance run beginning on December 3rd and closing on the 14th. Audiences attending the performances on December 6th, 7th, 12th, 13th and 14th will have the added treat of a Christmas-themed music concert after the show.

The plays are not performed at the Winslow Farm. The production travels up and down dark paths and over uneven terrain for approximately 1 km. 4th Line asks each patron to dress for the weather, wear appropriate footwear and bring a flashlight with them to the performance. The performances will go on rain, snow or shine.
