Good day on this first day of Autumn.
Investigator Frank Ellery finds himself in a pulp fiction predicament when a literary agent is gruesomely murdered in “Pulp,” the latest show from Williamston Theatre. The suspects are four writers for pulp magazines. As Frank launches his investigation, he finds that the sci-fi zaniness normally reserved for the page is invading his reality. This production is the world premiere of the play, which is written by Michigan playwright Joseph Zettelmaier. 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday; 3 p.m. Saturdays after Oct. 1; 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission varies by night, call or see web for details. Williamston Theatre, 122 S. Putnam St., Williamston. (517) 655-7469, williamstontheatre.org.
