Will you be the one who solves this “whodunit” mystery?

Will you be the one who solves this “whodunit” mystery?

Move over—or roll over—Agatha Christie! This mystery dinner show spoofs old fashioned whodunits, the medical profession, theatre folks and those with hot flashes! It’s a play within a play. When half of the cast of Murder on the Oriental Rug bails out, the remaining performers are stuck playing all the roles. Now that’s an interesting concept! You, the audience, will have to stay alert to determine “whodunit.” Clues will be given throughout the show and there will be a prize for someone who correctly guesses the murderer and the motives!
