Whodunnit Murder Mysteries!
An Inconvenient Corpse


What do you do when the guest of honor at your luncheon suddenly drops dead?  That's what the Ladies of the Deep South have to deal with when they find Darryl Burdett deceased after eating their food. "I think we found a name for the dish," club member Myrna tells another club member, June.  "Pasta-Way".  Was he murdered?  After all he was trying to blackmail most of the town.  And it's not like they have a lot of time to solve the crime, since Darryl is the Grand Marshall in the Founder's Day parade which is slated to begin only an hour away!  Or maybe it was someone else who did him in.  Say, the Mayor, who may have had some shady dealings with Darryl's grandfather who, by the way, kept a diary of all his dealings. Or maybe newspaper editor Alvin Carnes.  After all, he seems awfully interested in that diary as well.  Then after Darryl's girlfriend, Mimi, shows up, the pressure is really on.  What starts out as a leisurely brunch ends up as a game of 'let's hide the body'! More twists than a country road, this farce will keep you guessing and laughing at the same time. 

Published by Pioneer Drama Service, this show calls for one set and a cast of 7 men and 11 women.
