'Sleuth' at Beach Haven

What Is It: One of the most deviously clever thrillers ever concocted, "Sleuth," starring Fred Grandy of the 1970s "The Love Boat" TV series, will be performed today through Sunday at the Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven.

What To Expect: Plots, counterplots, and double crosses are unleashed as rivals play out deadly games in a tangled web of intrigue. Popular mystery writer Andrew Wyke (Grandy) lives in a world of plot twists and intricate strategies. In discovering his wife's lover, Milo (Christian Pedersen), Wyke devises a devious plan to humiliate him. But even the best laid plans can go astray when the police arrive and a new game begins - a game where rules don't apply, and the stakes are life or death.

Event Info: The performances are 2 p.m. today, 2 and 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in the Surflight Theatre, 201 Engleside Ave., Beach Haven, Long Beach Island. Tickets $45. Call the Surflight Theatre box office at 609-492-9477 or purchase online at surflight.org
