And Then There Were One, a Spoof

By MICHAEL DRUCE

Cast: Minimum of 5F, 5M.  Estimated run time: 40 minutes.

This spoof of the famous stage mystery is all comedy, filled with hilarious sight gags and dialogue.  Ten people are brought together by mysterious invitation to the Reef Mansion on a tiny, isolated island.  Not one of them knows the host, who is nowhere to be found.  Still, he has left an ominous recording that bodes evil for the guests.  Like the chocolate soldiers that inexplicably disappear from the mantel one by one, the guests begin to die one by one.

Not My Cup of Tea

By A.F. GROFF

Cast: Minimum of 3F.  Estimated run time: 20 minutes.

A comedy in which every member of the cast gets murdered!  A domineering old maid persuades her silly spinster sister to her in a plot to murder their mother and what a time they have doing it!  Mother doesn’t eat the poisoned cookies, there are no shells in the shotgun, pushing her out of the window of the first floor isn’t practical and it is so embarrassing to be caught in the act of trying to hit your mother over the head with a rolling pin.  It’s even worse when it turns out that mother doesn’t have any money and doesn’t even own the house.  The only thing to do is to sit down and have a quiet cup of tea which mother has thoughtfully prepared.

NOTE: Not My Cup of Tea has been pre-cast.
