Whodunit, the Musical!

By Ed Dixon

Directed by Loren M. Sass

A wealthy spinster and her cockney maid take a beautiful Connecticut summer home in 1931. When they arrive, all the help has quit, except for a very odd butler who tells them that something "strange" is going on. They are soon joined by the spinster's niece who's brought a friend from school... a "friend" who turns out to be a young man! Heavens! As they settle in for the night, a strange face appears at the window and someone tries to break in. Then after they've turned in for the night, a gun shot sounds and the body of a total stranger is found lying in the middle of the living room. Then another. A very austere detective arrives and things get REALLY strange... and funny. WHODUNIT... THE MUSICAL is a tuneful, hilarious romp that's part mystery, part drawing room farce and all musical comedy.
