                                                          Murder on the Menu 
                                                                  Written By Bill Hand

                          Produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Denver, Colorado

Artemus Ward, head of the lucrative family publishing business, falls face first into his mashed potatoes, revealing a knife in his back.  Luckily Dr. Bullfinger, an over-eager, newly elected county coroner, was dining at the restaurant and is eager to lead an investigation...  and give herself a career boost in the process! 

It’s hard to say who did it considering everyone has a motive.  Reginald, heir to the business?  Major, who wrote the company’s bestseller but hasn’t received his royalties?  Alexis, four time widow of husbands who died at the dinner table?  The destitute nephew, Bernie, from the mailroom?  Or Eileen Morrow, a backstabbing attorney? .  The humor, twists, and surprises don’t end in this cleverly crafted mystery.

Between scenes, there’s plenty of time for the audience to interact with cast members and discover additional clues so they can fill out their ”Whodunit?”  sheet.  The humor, twists, and surprises don’t end in this cleverly crafted mystery
