“Since whoever cut off the power escaped through the tunnels, I thought we could foray into the walls to look for clues. I’ll put together a picnic lunch in case we get lost.”

In the winter of 1940, an ominous blizzard cuts off all possibility of escape from a mansion where the creators of a new musical are assembled. When the infamous Stage Door Slasher strikes, the comic mayhem begins amidst secret passageways, a revolving bookcase, vintage espionage, and a host of colorful suspects. John Bishop’s wildly funny and clever play (which, btw, is not a musical) gives us the release of laughter that we’ve all been craving. If Agatha Christie were to write a farce, this would be it.
