PULASKI, Tenn.—The Martin Players at Martin Methodist College (MMC) will present Tom Stoppard’s “The Real Inspector Hound” this week.
Serving as director of the play is MMC English Professor Dr. Kayla Wiggins. “I have seen two productions of “The Real Inspector Hound,” said Wiggins. “But this is the first time I have directed the play. It has been a delightful experience. I have great respect for the work of Tom Stoppard, and this play is Stoppard at his best. It is witty, clever, and laugh-out-loud funny.”

- Robert Austell as Birdboot
- Skylar Lovvo as Moon
- Sydney Gregory as Lady Cynthia Muldoon
- Evan Hill as Simon
- Gracie Haynes as Felicity Cunningham
- David Lynch as Magnus Muldoon

- Trevor Ivey-Bodman as Higgs/Radio Announcer
- Fayth Dennis as Mrs. Drudge
