Customer Comments:
By Richard Gremel - DirectorTeacher - Empire High School
This was a great play to produce. The students had a lot of fun playing out the variety of characters. The audience really got a kick out of the show and we received a lot of great comments afterwards. The show is easy to stage and allows for some great comedic bits.
By Debra Gaddis - Drama teacher - Joseph Lane MS
My 8th grade middle school drama students had a great time putting on this play. Every student felt they had an important role in the plot and humor of the production. They especially enjoyed being able to portray characters with some sophistication--we decided on the 30 something age group. Our corpse did an excellent job staying in character!
In a desperate attempt to become a member of Harriet Hammer’s posh country club, Sybil Chasteen invites Ms. Hammer to a formal dinner party on the same day that she discovers a dead body in the trunk of her new car. While Sybil waits impatiently for the authorities, the corpse, nicknamed Mr. X, sits propped up on her sofa as the list of murder suspects grows. The police, distracted by a few other cases, finally arrive only to find Sybil’s life spiraling recklessly out of control in this door-slamming, phone ringing, ridiculously fun murder-mystery parody that includes backstage rim shots, witty one-liners and a backyard wedding. Easy staging and flexible casting.
