A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody by Ron Bernas was the winner of the Community Theatre Association of Michigan New Plays Competition. It will be the subject of a play reading with Andrea Ragusa on Monday, Dec. 2, at 12:30.
The play is a spoof of and love letter to the screwball comedies of the 1930s. This two-act piece featuring witty dialogue and slapstick comedy begins on New Year’s Eve with the rich, bored Matthew promising to kill his rich, bored wife Julia so he can become a jet setter like his friend who recently lost his wife. During the year in which the play takes place, there are several mysterious deaths that occur on the grounds of the family estate. It seems that Matthew is successful in murdering everyone but Julia. The play ends with a nice bang! Call 203-834-6240 to register.
