MOLINE, ILLINOIS (August 9, 2021) — The Black Box Theatre present “Murder in Green Meadows” by Douglas Post August 19 through 28. Starring James Driscoll, Jenny Winn, Jonathan Grafft, and Lora Adams and directed by Jacqueline Isaacson.

The psychological thriller received six Emmy Award nominations when presented on TV with the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago. Reviewers called “Murder in Green Meadows”  “A thoroughly satisfying thriller on all points. Four stars.” — WMAQ-TV. “It spins a web of deception, sex, murder and mind games as two suburban couples discover their darker sides.” —Chicago Tribune. “An archly manipulative psycho-thriller. . . a well-made murder mystery. . . it holds your attention like a leash.” — Windy City Times.

The plot finds Thomas Devereaux (Driscoll), a successful architect and local contractor, and his beautiful wife, Joan (Winn), have just moved into their dream house in the quiet suburban town of Green Meadows when they are visited by their new neighbors, Carolyn and Jeff Symons, and a friendship develops quickly between the two couples. But underneath the cool, middle-American exterior, something is truly rotten. What follows? You’ll have to come and find out.

Set and costume design by Adams, set construction Michael Kopriva, and light design by David Miller.

Thursday night tickets are $13, all other performances $16. Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30PM, and Sunday at 2PM.
