The Murder Room
by Jack Sharkey
Sep 11-27, 2015
A zany spoof of British mysteries set in Bynewood Cottage, on a small estate just a few kilometers from Harrogate, a medium-sized town in West Riding, Yorkshire, in the north part of England.
"Murder has never been this funny. A spoof of all crime thrillers... it is good clean mirth all the way. The quick, smart, extremely well timed dialogue of Jack Sharkey comes through loud and clear [with] never a dull moment."
"There are secret chambers, secret panels and trap lids galore. They're all operated by the most ridiculous contrivances and gloriously mucked up...A high, mad melodrama."
— Frank Harris
"Delightful...constant humor...A good mixture of Agatha Christie, Monty Python, and Abbot and Costello!"
— Canon, Memphis

Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder. Unfortunately…the murderer gets murdered and the victim survives!
This exciting melodrama had a highly successful run on Broadway and the road.
"…original and remarkably good theatre—quiet in style but tingling with excitement underneath."
"It's a holiday for the whodunit fans, and, as such, it couldn't be more welcome."
