A classic British whodunit

"The delightful cast keeps the dialogue saucy and the comedy swift. It's a pleasure to watch them do the nasty."

- Time Out
A juicy mystery story is hard to beat, especially when it’s billed as a comedy of horrors. Joe Orton’s 1965 satire of religious hypocrisy and British morals reads like a Kafkaesque version of Clue. Thieves Hal and Dennis need a place to stash their loot, but the passing of Hal’s mother and her mysterious reappearance sounds the alarm bell. With a naughty nurse and harmless gardening dad as potential suspects, this wickedly funny farce will have you sleuthin’ for the answer. Best available reserved seating allocated by the venue on arrival.
