“…an ingenious miniature musical…spins out a comic mystery animated by funny, deftly turned songs.” –New York Times 

The perfect blend of music, mayhem and murder!

With its blend of Agatha Christie-like intrigue, vaudeville, slapstick and two terribly talented actors—not to mention a piano, this noir-ish tale delivers a ridiculously fun farce.

A small-town policeman dreams of becoming a full-fledged detective.  One fateful night at a surprise party, a crime novelist is killed…fatally.  With the nearest detective an hour away, the officer jumps at the chance to prove he’s up on crime-scene protocol.

But whodunnit?  Did the novelist’s scene-stealing wife give him a big finish?  Is his secret lover, the prima ballerina, the prime suspect?  Or did the overly friendly town psychiatrist make a fatal frenemy?  The officer has to find the killer before the real detective arrives—but the biggest mystery of all is…who stole the ice cream?

Two actors. One piano. Thirteen suspects. The perfect blend of music, mayhem and murder.
