Suggested Ages: 7 to 14+, Adult Friendly

In this hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes, the opening night of a murder mystery play-within-a-play quickly goes from bad to utterly disastrous. A play (not a musical) full of slapstick, physical comedy.

⏱ Two hours with one intermission – lots of action and no time to be bored.
❤️ Some (silly) innuendo and groping in the ‘acting’ and an actress in modest lingerie because she lost her dress.
🤨 Lots of loud noises and walls crashing down and frequent (silly) ‘injuries,’ can be loud and startling.

🎟 $34 tickets available through digital lottery.
🎟 Frequently at TKTS for $57.
🎟 The theatre is only 350 seats and one level; any seat offers a great view of the stage.

Wednesday-Monday 7 pm
Thursday, Saturday & Sunday 2 pm
