Murder on the Oriential Rug
Move over Agatha Christie! Stage Left Theater Company is about to unveil a mystery dinner show that spoofs old-fashioned whodunits, the medical profession, “female problems,” and theater folks! When half the cast of bails out, the remaining performers are stuck playing …all the roles.
You’ll meet a Shakespearean actor with a drinking problem, a washed-up former child star, a bimbo with a short memory, and a hapless costumer who finds herself onstage — playing a man. During the “play within a play,” you’ll visit the exclusive clinic of Dr. Charles Ovary, renowned hot flash specialist who’s secretly treating a famous actress trying desperately to regain her youth.
You’ll get to know the doctor’s devoted but clueless wife, his passionate female protégé, the actresses’ hunky husband, a flighty French maid, a shifty handyman, and an inspector investigating the dead body on the Oriental rug.
