A thriller unlike any other…
Writers Harry and Paul have just concocted the plot for their latest murder mystery, but their partnerships might be almost as deadly as the perfect crime they’ve imagined. Old grudges, buried secrets and devilish schemes boil to the surface in this delightful romp of a mystery about what happens when a friendship faces its final curtain.
Murder by Misadventure is a cat-and-mouse thriller filled with enough twists and turns to warm our Script in Hand audiences on a cold winter night. Edward Taylor’s ingenious and funny play updates the classic thriller genre while paying homage to the great stage mysteries of the past. There’s Harold Kent, one half of the murder mystery writing duo — level-headed, practical, and a rational thinker. While his other half — Paul Riggs — is a slightly more reckless fellow despite his creative genius. Intermission may be filled with theories about who did what when, but this clever tale will keep the audience guessing right up until curtain call.
