A church is dead, and Sam Slade, a low-rent private investigator is called in to find the murderer. Totally absurd yet very pointed in its message, the play follows Sam as he encounters a teary-eyed secretary, a hard-nosed deacon, a suspicious pastor, a grieving janitor, and a manipulating youth group consisting of one person. A fun-filled whodunit that presents the different kinds of attitudes that can kill a church. Playwright McCusker is the popular author of Sketches of Harvest, Souvenirs, Batteries Not Included, First Church of Pete's Garage, and many more, making him one of the leading writers of plays for youth chancel production. Easy to stage, smart dialogue, good roles, and a topical theme make this an ideal choice for all groups.
