Dublin, Missouri. County seat of Chosen County. Home to a thriving cheese plant, a welcoming church, and a surprisingly good community theatre. Home to the Hoch and Bates families, their friends and neighbors, and the occasional visitor. A place for community, nostalgia, and middle-American values.
Death changes things.
Wilder's Our Town meets Shaw's Saint Joan in this country-noir story about how friendship, loyalty, and willful denial prevent us from confronting the truth.
Setting: Summer in a small town on the cusp of the new millennium.
Last Call at Chez Mort
Saturday, June 3, 2017
7 - 10 PM
Return to the Golden age of the 1940's and the famous night club Chez Mort which was the scene of an unusual crime. As newspapers of the day reported: "Ingenue 'Sweet Sue' Blutowsky was mysteriously and fatally cut short during her debut singing performance. Inspector Constantine was quick on the scene to investigate the strange circumstances surrounding the shocking events. In attendance that night was the infamous hoodlum Big Suit Stu and his foreign henchman. Was he the culprit? Or the ditzy French Emcee Jean Paul Truffaut? Journey back in time and join the good inspector on that fateful evening and find out for yourself.
An elegant evening of dinner, dance, drinks and (playful) danger.
Save the date and join us. More details to come...
Coming at the end of February.
