‘Icicle Twist’ in works for library’s annual murder mystery in March
They’re at it again—planning another murder at the Lied Imperial Public Library.
That’s what Friends of the Library will be up to in the coming weeks as they prepare for their annual murder mystery spoof, this time set in a ski lodge with plenty of suspects.
“Icicle Twist” will be staged at the library on Friday, March 23, at 7 p.m.
A cast of eight men and women will help provide clues as the play unfolds, while the audience tries to help solve the murder, said Director Jan Graham, a Friends of the Library member who also serves as library board chairman.
Set in 1984, “Icicle Twist” centers around the death of Boris Ivanovitch, a research scientist at the Beam Weaponry Research Center, who was found dead of a stab wound during a party at his condominium.

The audience will attempt to determine through dialogue and other clues “who dunnit,” said Graham.
Other potential suspects in the cast, in addition to Michael Maitland, include:
