The Westing Game
The Westing Game
"More than a dozen people—who are heirs to the Westing estate, but don't know why—split off into teams of two and try to win the game by solving the mystery … It's a combination of a mystery novel, a jigsaw puzzle and a game of 'Clue.'"

Mystery. Adapted by Darian Lindle. From the Newbery Award-winning novel by Ellen Raskin.

Cast: 8m., 7w. The unsuspecting residents of Sunset Towers are summoned to the reading of a mysterious will, only to find themselves locked in a thrilling game, as they must discover who is responsible for killing an eccentric millionaire. Through blizzards, bombings and unlikely alliances, the game is on, and the only people who hold all the clues are one Westing heir and you. Unit set. Approximate running time: two hours.
