A Little Murder Never Hurt Anyone by Theatre Suburbia
Sunday, May 8, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday, happening 2 times
This six-character comedy is a spoof of and love letter to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and to stage mysteries in general.
The play opens with the rich, bored Matthew Perry promising to kill his rich, bored wife Julia so he can become a jet setter like his friend who recently lost his wife. Julia, who’s always about three steps ahead of him, plays along.
During the year the play takes place, there are several mysterious deaths that occur on the grounds of the family estate, a butler who is not what he seems, a detective who can’t buy a clue, and two innocents (sort of) caught in the hilarity as they plan their wedding. While Julia cleverly dodges Matthew’s devious murder attempts, the Perry friends and staff are dying off mysteriously. It seems Matthew is successful in murdering everyone but Julia.
