Our Next Show

Bloody Murder 851x315

A group of the usual British mystery-murder types gather at Lady Somerset's country estate. Suddenly, one of them dies of poison! Well, of course. What fun! But why won't her Ladyship summon the police? Is this just another formulaic, all-too-predictable mystery story? Or is it something diabolically...different? Audiences will be thoroughly entertained with this hilarious murder mystery.
