Those looking for a value-added "date night" on Valentine's Day may want to check out the Pinckney Players' next production.
"The Real Inspector Hound" offers murder, mystery and comedy served up in dinner theater format for $25 per person.
"This is incredibly affordable and it will be a fun night," says Kris Lovill, director.
In the show, two theater critics, played by Geoffrey Pettengill and Fred Kahle, think they're reviewing a play, but they end up in the middle of an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery at a country manor.
"It's witty, it makes you think and there are some surprises for the audience," Lovill says.
