One dark and stormy night on the outskirts of 1950s Washington DC, six high-profile guests arrive at a party hosted in an eerie old mansion. None of them know who has invited them, and all have been asked to adopt pseudonyms to conceal their identities. Soon enough, the mansion’s butler, Wadsworth, reveals to them that their host is a man named Mr. Boddy who has been blackmailing all of them to profit off of their shady businesses and scandals. But when Mr. Boddy suddenly turns up dead, panic, chaos and hilarity ensue as the guests point accusatory fingers at one another to determine the killer. But is anyone truly innocent? And what were they really invited for?



Mr. Boddy’s butler and head of housekeeping at the Boddy mansion. He leads the chaotic unfoldings of the evening.

Mr. Green

A shy and clumsy government bureaucrat who doesn’t have a strong enough stomach to participate in a murder mystery dinner party.

Mrs. Peacock

A loud-mouthed and eccentrically-dressed senator’s wife who is a little too prone to hysteria and reliant on her flask of whiskey.


The sexy and fawning French maid (With a ridiculous accent)

Mr. Boddy 

The host of the party, a mysterious man of wealth with seemingly endless underground connections and informants.

The Cook 

A tough and hard-working employee of Boddy Manor who is rarely seen off her feet.

The Motorist 

An unsuspecting and unexpected visitor to Boddy Manor whose car broke down in the rain storm.

Martina Peterson (she/her)
– Director –

Martina is a Carleton alum who has been part of the Sock n Buskin community for nearly four years. After spending a year lurking in the audience, she mustered up the courage to volunteer as a stagehand for Pride & Prejudice in the fall of 2019. Since then, she has designed/managed costumes for King Lear (2020) and Bad Auditions… On Camera (2020), stage managed Advance Man (2021), acted in Concord Floral (2021) and Anne of Green Gables (2022), and served as External Coordinator for the SnB board in the 2021-22 season. Now, directing for the first time, she is ecstatic to continue being a part of this fabulous, welcoming and exciting community, and to put on a show that she hopes will keep you on the edge of your seat with laughter and suspense!


Gabbie Cruz Headshot

Gabbie Cruz (they/them)
– Stage Manager –

Gabbie is thrilled to have the opportunity to stage manage another Sock ’n’ Buskin production in their third year at Carleton! They have stage managed virtually and in-person for SnB, with notable shows including Concord Floral (2021) and Anne of Green Gables (2022); yet they haven’t got a Clue on what they are doing (get it?) (for professional reasons, they want to clarify that they do know what they are doing…somewhat). Gabbie is studying Childhood & Youth Studies, with minors in Psychology and English: Language & Literature. When they are not scribbling down blocking or anxiously pacing in a tech booth, Gabbie enjoys writing, reading, collecting funky earrings on Etsy, and listening to DnD podcasts with no intention of actually learning the rules of DnD.
