The Murderer

Saturday, March 19, 2016

A one-act play that tells the story of a man who marries his mother-in-law to shelter five million dollars from the IRS. When Gerald’s mother-in-law, Spiffy, finds out she hasn’t long to live, Gerald concocts a plan to keep her estate “in the family.” But when they move down to Florida to wait out Spiffy’s death sentence at Riddle Key, old friends and new faces threaten to spoil the scheme, and a surprise twist throws a wrench into Gerald’s plans unless he can pull off the perfect murder.  This play may contain adult content and language.
