Season Opener

Great storm effects, spiffy costumes and lots of fun and mystery distinguish this work by the author of Abduction, The Reunion and others. Ever want to commit a murder? Walter, the playwright's alter ego in this madcap mystery, demonstrates just how to do someone in — in your imagination, of course!

After introducing the audience to tyrannical millionaire Edward Worthington's relatives, business associates and household staff – most of whom have reason to wish the man dead – Walter exits, only to reappear in a tuxedo as Worthington. Gathered on a stormy evening at Worthington Manor, each person has a motive that is barely established when the lights go out! Seconds later, they come back on to reveal the knife for the birthday cake protruding from Edward's back.

In Act II, the police detective (also played by Walter) investigates, eventually allowing the audience to question or accuse suspects before the killer's identity is revealed in a surprising climax.

Director Linda Jensen opens our 24th Season with this hilarious piece.
