2019 Script in Hand Playreadings

Murder Too
by David Wiltse

Monday, May 6, 2019 at 7 PM

A new comedy thriller set in the theater world where love, betrayal, and maybe murder, too, take center stage. Mara Baron, an artistic director of her own theater with a diva-like attitude and a voracious sexual appetite, has been receiving death threats and has acquired a pistol for self-defense. She has just taken on a hapless young actor/handyman as an appetizer when her best friend, patron and very wealthy woman, Eve Cohen Snedeker, arrives for drinks with her husband, Todd Snedeker, a disgruntled novelist/playwright who is an outspoken critic of Mara–in private. Mara hides the actor in another room, but he soon appears unbidden and befriends Todd by flattering his novels. Pretending to speak hypothetically about a new novel, Todd involves the actor in a plot to murder Mara because she has threatened to tell Eve about their ongoing affair. When Mara finds out about her proposed murder, and Eve finds out about Mara's affair with her husband, everyone turns murderous in their inept and comical ways.
