Walking on Water is an engaging and theatrical murder mystery. It's also a moving and panoramic return to a place and time of moral clarity, good guys and bad guys, tough broads and daring dames.
The play begins in the year 1999 with the sound of the bulldozers approaching. They are about to unearth the dead, moving the graves in the Ashburnham Necropolis to make way for a new highway. But those buried together in the cemetery share a secret and there is a mystery to solve before they are sent off to their new homes and gain their eternal rest. In 1949, Lee Kwan, the chauffeur for the town's newspaper publisher, was found dead under his employer's Packard. It quickly becomes apparent that Lee did not die of natural causes. He was murdered. But who did it? Each of the 13 wonderfully comic characters has secrets to hide and a story to tell, and over the course of two acts and fifty years, a fascinating portrait of a Canadian city emerges. And moments before the bulldozers arrive, Lee Kwan's murder is indeed solved in an immensely satisfying conclusion to this grand and moving drama.
