Synopsis

Look out, our band of lovable yet impossibly inept thespians are onstage again in All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Murder Mystery. Last time, we saw our collection of bad actors and actresses in All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play. In that comic disaster, they butchered Romeo and Juliet, performing the timeless classic by Shakespeare in a Starbucks while wearing potato sacks and bowler hats. This time, our terrible troupe takes on the genre that will not die—the murder mystery! Follow along—if you dare—as our misguided performers attempt to nail down those devilish British accents, understand what a red herring is, and figure out how to die onstage without looking all gross and stuff. Meanwhile, the director and stage manager, who really love dealing with the egomaniacs and lunatics in the cast, wouldn't really try to murder someone during the murder mystery. Would they?! Chaos rules the day as time is running out for cast and crew to sort out this mess. Safe to say, you will never look at a whodunit the same way again as All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Murder Mystery brings up the curtain on bad accents, murder and laughs.

"My Middle School students LOVED this show. It was quirky, provided goofy characters for them to explore, and space to be creative after too long online."
Review by Robin Williams, International School of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya
"This is a great one act show with an easy set. It could be used for different settings, like a dinner theater."
