OLIVET, Mich. The Olivet College theatre program will present the play, The Real Inspector Hound, April 3 to 5 at the Oaks Theatre in downtown Olivet. The production, which begins at 7:30 p.m. each evening, is free and open to the public.
The Real Inspector Hound, a one-act play written by Tom Stoppard, is a spin-off of todays popular murder mysteries.

However, as the play progresses, the critics are drawn into the mystery in a hilarious and unexpected way.
This play is a lot of fun, said Williams. The script is smart and witty, and we have a great cast. Were fortunate to have so many talented actors.
