PLAY OVERVIEW: Great storm effects, spiffy costumes and lots of fun and mystery distinguish this work. Gathered on a stormy evening at Worthington Manor to celebrate Edward’s fiftieth birthday are his attractive wife, her brother, Edward’s befuddled older sister, his ex-wife and his daughter, and a college student. Also present are his shady lawyer and his uptight business manager with his giddy wife and southern secretary, as well as the butler, the housekeeper, the maid and the cook. Each has a motive that is barely established when the lights go out! Seconds later the lights come back on to reveal the knife for the birthday cake protruding from Edward’s back. In Act II, the police detective investigates, eventually allowing the audience to question or accuse suspects before the killer’s identity is revealed in a surprising climax.
Tickets can be purchased at the door.
