Murder on the Oriental Rug
When half the cast of the show bails out, the remaining performers are stuck playing all the roles. You’ll meet a Shakespearean actor with a drinking problem, a washed-up former child star and a bimbo with a short memory. During the “play within a play,” you’ll visit the exclusive clinic of Dr. Charles Ovary, renowned hot flash specialist who’s secretly treating a famous actress trying desperately to regain her youth. You’ll get to know the doctor’s devoted but clueless wife, his passionate female protégé, the actresses’ hunky husband, a flighty French maid, a shifty handyman, and an inspector investigating the dead body on the Oriental rug. Will the play make it to Broadway? Will the performers remember their lines? Will the Shakespearean actor fit into the maid’s costume? Will the chalk outline come out of the rug? Will the inspector solve the murder?
A fully-interactive entertainment experience, Murder & A Meal is set in an intimate (yet COVID-conscious) environment where audience members become part of the action. Participants will enjoy a 3-course meal re-imagined to meet with current health & safety protocols.
