“Three Murders and It’s only Monday,” is the play being staged by the Virgin Valley Theatre Group for the month of May.
The play is written by Pat Cook and is a spoof of the whodunit genre and private eyes. The play is directed by Susan Bennett and John Marler.
The play is set up in one room with five men and four women playing 14 roles, which is dominated by down-on-his-luck private eye Harry Monday played by Dale McCallister.
The plot involves a will and the beneficiaries being killed off one at a time.
Who is doing all the killing? And why in order of the child’s poem “Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man, Thief.” It may be the rich man’s actor son or his society daughter or the nurse, the gardener or lawyer?
To find out, you’ll have to attend. Shows are May 2, 3 ,9, 10, 16 and 17 at 7 p.m. and a Sunday matinee, May 11, at 2 p.m. at the Mesquite Community Theater, 150 N. Yucca St.
