"The Murder Room", the first show of Eunice Players' Theatre's 43rd season is set to open Wednesday, April 18. The comedy-mystery, written by Jack Sharkey and directed by Jody L. Powell, follows the dastardly plot of one money hungry gold digger, Mavis, who is suspected of killing her wealthy husband, Edgar. When Edgar’s imbecilic daughter, Susan, arrives with her fiancé’, Barry, in tow, they unknowingly complicate Mavis’ plot. As the police attempt to solve the mystery of Edgar’s disappearance, his interfering housekeeper, Lottie, gets involved and chaos ensues. With lovably stupid characters and a script that crackles with silly wordplay and confusing questions, the play packs in laughs from beginning to end for a hilarious romp through the murder mystery genre with a resolution that is hard to see coming.

Evening performances will be held April 19, 20, 21, 25, 26 at 7:00 p.m. A matinee will be held Sunday, April 22 at 2:00 p.m. Dinner theatre (with steak and trimmings) is scheduled for Wednesday, April 18 at 6:00 p.m. with the performance immediately following. Tickets for the play and season tickets are currently on sale at David Ltd. Salon and Turning Point in Eunice, or by calling David at 546-0163 or Debi at 457-2156 to charge by phone.
