There were a lot of local plays to choose from this weekend, and we chose the one closest to home: the final performance of Riverbend’s production of Postmortem. The drama students did a fine job with the play, a whodunit set in 1922 which features murder, attempted murder, plenty of gunshots, some bloodshed, and a breakaway bottle over the head (the first time I saw that in a high school play, and a very convincing one, too), with solid set design, costumes and lighting. The play was fast-paced, and with enough plot twists to keep me guessing until the end. And then scratching my head, because the plot had more holes in it than...well, something with a lot of holes in it. Props (ha!) to the Riverbend Drama Dept. for a solid production.
