The Murder Room
by Jack Sharkey

Sep 11 - 27, 2015
Tickets:
      Thu, Fri, Sat: $15
      Sun matinee: $13      

Directed by Tracy Wolfgram Walker

 

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."
Times

"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

Dial "M" for Murder
by Fredrick Knott
Oct 23-Nov 8, 2015

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."
NY Times

"It's a holiday for the whodunit fans, and, as such, it couldn't be more welcome."
NY Herald-Tribune

A Tuna Christmas
by Ed Howard, Joe Sears, and Jaston Williams
Nov 27-Dec 13, 2015

In this hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, it's Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest. In other news, voracious Joe Bob Lipsey's production of "A Christmas Carol" is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna denizens, some you will recognize from Greater Tuna and some appearing here for the first time, join in the holiday fun.

"A hoot!"
NY Times

"So funny it could make a racoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett ... It's far too good for just Christmas."
The New York Post

"The hilarity ... never lets up."
The Village Voice

Patron Testimonial

"We absolutely LOVED the show ... it was a delight, perfectly cast, costumed so well that additional sets were not needed, could have been an off Broadway production right here in K-ville. When I was in NYC in Dec., I saw 3 off Broadway shows which made me appreciate TKD even more ... including the venue! When I tell people that TKD is as good as NYC, I know what I am talking about!"
- L. Denton, Knoxville
