This play is slightly difficult to produce, but can be done with an inventive crew and cast! Taxidermy props can be tricky/expensive to find, but a trip to Goodwill or a plea to the right people usually makes it work.
The mysterious will can be printed in programs so the audience can join in the fun. If working with young actors, remind them the show is a parody; taking the characters too seriously can often ruin the fun (and miss the point).

Neither a funny farce or a funny play! Yes full of twists and turns but none that enhance the action or story. More than disappointing and hard to produce unless you have a large well equipped theatre and lots of money. I guess if you love all American humour then its right for you and your audiences!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Bone Chiller! It was a lot of fun. It was full of surprises and humor. One thing that deterred us from from producing it was some difficult prop requirements; specifically the taxidermy eagle that opens up to have a safety deposit box inside full of cash! I wish Samuel French would provide resources to how other companies have handled some of the things on the prop list. Perhaps one day I will have an epiphany and change my mind about this one!
