2020-08-22 (SAT) Something’s Fishy -OR- Who Murdered Muriel?

August 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$20 – $40

Dr. Lucy Marshall has developed a food for fish that causes them to grow to an enormous size with the goal of, one day, solving world hunger.  Her test subject is a fish that she names Muriel.  She has the full backing of the company she works for (Aquatic Scientifics) and they are well into trials and studies to make sure the results provide a safe and healthy result.  They stand to make billions.  Their competitor, Walter Kelp of Nautical Foods, wants to bring it to a halt.  He enlists the help of a greedy real estate broker named Louise Smurge, who enlists the help of a “Save the Animals” Society and they each go to work to serve their own agendas.

While all this is going on, there is a major diamond theft on the other side of town involving Bud, the janitor at Aquatic Scientifics, who happens to also be a book maker for whatever you care to make a wager on.  Dr. Marshall’s Lab Assistant, Will, has been making use of Bud’s services and has run up a rather large gambling debt in the process, so Bud enlists his help to hide the diamonds as a way of getting his debts expunged.  There is a break in at the Lab and the next morning Muriel is found dead, floating at the top of her fish tank.  Who could have done such a thing?

Find out as the case is solved by two detectives, with the reluctant help of the city coroner.  (She doesn’t do fish).  Oh yes!  And the insurance company sends a veterinary coroner to keep an eye on things and protect their interests too…  What next?

How The Heck Did This Happen???

A funny thing happened on the way to the theater … One day, a dear friend of playwrights Judith Sapperstein and Gary Murway contacted them and said something to the tune of … “I’d love to take your work, ‘Women are from Venus, Men are from Uranus’ to the Liverpool International Theatre Festival in 2016, but it’s too long and I’d need to get a theatre group who is able to travel to perform it.”
