Ms. Mystrie, the famous and prolific mystery writer, gathers a group of the world's finest (and most peculiar) detectives at her home for a weekend of rollicking and relaxation. Her guests include Nancy Sketch, Sherlucky Holmes, Clues II, The Hardly Brothers (though they're hardly brothers), and Rob Remington, Private Investigator. Once all together, Ms. Mystrie convinces them all to solemnly promise not to solve any mystery for two whole days. Everyone, though at first skeptical, complies. But when the body of a mysterious guest is found, everyone must decide whether to keep their promise. Unbeknownst to Ms. Mystrie (and everyone else), each of them has decided to find a way to find the murderer without solving the mystery. This play is full of frenzied one-liners and comic word-play.
The House of Agatha Mystrie was first presented at Ortonville, Minnesota on August 4, 1989 by the Odens Family Players.
