Echo Theatre’s The Inscrutable Fugue directed by Robb Patterson is a mystery comedy inspired by a real- life event.
To make sure I was on the same page I thought it best to check with Mr. Webster to verify the meaning of some of playwright Leigh-Anne Kehler’s words.
Fugue is a psychiatric term for “ a state or period of loss of awareness of one’s identity, often coupled with flight from one’s usual environment, associated with certain forms of hysteria.”
Inscrutable is defined as impossible to explain or interpret; mysterious, which sums up Agatha’s Christie’s eleven day disappearance after her husband Archie announced he was in love with his secretary.
This reviewer would like to add a third definition to the plot, namely, “talent “which is “a natural ability or skill.”
The talented actors, Eric Blais (Archie and Gaston (merman), Charlene Van Buekenhout (maid and spa professional) and Leigh-Anne Kehler (Agatha Christie) are what make experimental and innovative theatre so enjoyable.
