       A Mystery Comedy by Fred Carmichael

    (A mystery comedy by Fred Carmichael)

    (8 male / 8 female roles) - possible cross-gender casting - 

    PLOT:

    Once famous mystery writers involve the audience as they apply their individual methods to solving various murders. 

    They include a couple who write "sophisticated" murder stories,  a young author of the "James Bond" style, a "Sam Spade" hard-boiled detective writer, and a retired British,  "Agatha Christie" style  writer. 

    The story alternates between reality and imagination as the five mystery writers attempt to plot the "perfect murder." 

    Suddenly, one by one, each writer mysteriously begins disappearing leaving the audience to figure out "Who dunnit?"
