The Play

We will be performing Murder is a Game by Fred Carmichael.


The show has laughter, suspense and intrigue with fun characters and plenty of plot twists.

When a successful married mystery writing team hit a block with the plot for their new book, their publisher arranges for them to spend a weekend in an old mansion, built on a movie set.

To help inspire the writers, various people have been hired to play an assortment of characters and act out a murder which the couple must try to solve. However, when a real murder occurs fun and mayhem ensue.
