Murder for Two
Recommended for audiences ages 10 and up.
Murder for Two is an uproarious comedy/murder mystery with two performers, one of whom portrays aspiring detective Marcus Moscowicz, while the other plays all ten suspects.
The language is very mild. A couple of “hells” are heard.
A married couple (Barb and Murray, both played by the same actor) fight: she yells at him, “At least I don’t have a small penis!” Barrette, the ballerina, confesses that she had an affair with the victim, infuriating his wife Dahlia (“I thought so, especially those nights when she joined us in bed! But this confirms it!”).
A gunshot is heard at the opening, and the victim, novelist Arthur Whitney, is dead, shot in the forehead (the body cannot be seen, though the players refer to it). Officer Moscowicz tells a story about his former lover, Vanessa, who turned out to be a serial killer (she is caught carrying a briefcase of body parts); one character is poisoned onstage (these moments are played for laughs rather than horror).
