Rigby Muldoon: Paradox At Vanderkroft Manor

 

Review


Rigby Muldoon is reminiscent of Dirk Gently: Holistic Detective Agency —or at least it attempts to be. The story revolves around six individuals, all from different eras, who become trapped in a time travelling house during a severe thunderstorm. After a murder occurs, Rigby Muldoon must find out who the murderer is, and find a way to get each person back to their respective time. The premise sounds interesting enough, and has a lot of potential, but the play gets bogged down for a variety of reasons. There are inconsistencies in the script, and the flashback scenes come out of nowhere with little connection to the rest of the story. There’s also the problem with use of the words "oriental" and "yellow" in reference to two of the Filipino characters in the play. To be fair, the character using them is from the late 1800s and it is something that would have been said at the time, but the play could have easily avoided using those and not lost anything for it. For a show billed as a comedy, it was lacking in laughs and some of the lines came out awkward. It was entertaining, but nothing to feel bad about if missed. Reviewed by Alexander Sorochan.
