Author's Notes:
The play is the thing, or is it? Could it be something else, such as a script for murder?WRITE ME A MURDER explores one of my favorite mystery devices, getting a group of people together and then knocking them off one by one. The fun is less about unmasking the killer, than how the preposterous group of intended targets go about trying to solve their dilemma. Plenty of great lines and sight gags make for a fun show. If you have comments and pix of your production, please send them to
Edward Fortune's name is synonymous with money. The eccentric business tycoon subscribes to the notion that living well is the best revenge. Flamboyant and outspoken, ten guests are invited to Mr. Fortune's lavish weekend retreat for a creative investment opportunity. They're thinking stocks and bonds, but Mr. Fortune with all the access to all of the money in the world, just bought a fledgling theatre and bet his artistic director that ten ordinary people could write a more entertaining play than anything that's been staged at this off-off Broadway theatre. If they succeed, they will receive a sizable check for their creative contributions; if they fail, they enjoyed a nice, quiet weekend in an exquisite estate. Somewhere between nice and quiet, the rules apparently change and the greedy guests decide fewer writers means more money which means a higher body count.
