Abra Cadaver
Abra Cadaver
By John Mattera.

Cast: 3m., 2w. This gem of a murder mystery has been constructed with consummate playwriting skill. With more twists than a mountain road, your audience will gasp as each new turn is revealed. As the play starts, Jack and his girlfriend Christine plot to kill Marie, Jack's wife. Then we find that Christine has informed Marie of the plot and they are working together to do in the unsuspecting Jack. However, Jack is working on another scheme—and so is Marie! Just as you think you've got it all worked out, there's an even more astonishing switch. Two int. sets. Approximate Running Time: 30 minutes.
