2nd Star Productions presents...


February 9 - 24, 2018

By John Bishop

Directed by Jane Wingard

Produced by Victoria Rose Brown

Assistant Directed by Steve Mangum

When the creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop assemble for a backer’s audition for a new musical on a suburban estate, things turn deadly with plenty of confusing murders and knotty plots to unravel in John Bishop’s comedic thriller. This ingenious and wildly comic romp spoofs the great murder mystery movies of the 1940s, leaving the audience to wonder, whodunit?
