Opening today at the Bowie Playhouse, Shannon Michal Dow, Jan Henson Dow and Robert Schroeder’s whodunnit “Dark Passages” will aim to send a shiver up the spine of thrill-loving audiences. Set in a small, formerly idyllic college town where women are disappearing, the tale tosses together a troubled couple, a sinister landlord and a detective with a history to nerve-wracking results. Presented by Bowie Community Theater, “Dark Passages” runs 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays March 16. For more information, visit bctheatre.com.
