Enter a pretty young girl insists over his protests that she is the missing wife. A priest backsup her story. A funny little man who owns a delicatessen enters and before you know it there are two murders at the isolated lodge.

Great twists and turns until the very end. Lots of the audience saying "didn't see that coming" as they left. Great comedic turns for each cast member. Easy unit set.... except requires 4 doors.
Audiences loved it!

Had to emphasize in our marketing that it is not the Frank Abignale story!

A great mystery and a sure-fire crowd pleaser, too! I have done the show in California and North Carolina, and both times the audience members agreed that it was "one of the best I have ever seen." It is also one of my finalists for next season here at my new theatre.

Highly recommended. Get a script and read it -- and see if YOU can figure out "whodunit" until -- literally! -- the very last page! There are great roles for leads and supporting players, and funny throughout. Everybody gets a chance to "steal the show."

This comedy thriller is a gem that broke box office records at the Vero Beach Theatre Guild.
