A Murder Mystery in Two Acts
by Richard Davis, Jr.
4W / 4M
Approximate Playing Time: 95 Minutes

Lynn Ryder is dead.  That we know for sure even though we see her spirit throughout the play.  Whether she was murdered is a mystery.  Lynn’s children suspect her current husband, Frederico, of foul play.  After all, he wormed his way into the Ryder estate and no one, not even his adopted daughter, Maria, have much use for him. But when Frederico finds himself dead on the drawing room floor, the accusations begin to fly.  After all, Frederico seems to have some questionable involvement with both step-daughter Bette and adopted daughter Maria. Lynn’s only son, Rob, who appears to have an attraction to Maria despite his fumbling attempts to show it, is suspected of having an interest in Dorsett, the Ryder family’s estate lawyer.  And of course, youngest daughter, Jackie, a nurse, recently came back from drug rehab.  With over 100 million dollars at stake, any one of them could be a murderer. Sorting out the facts and examining the clues, Sgt. John Bannister unravels the intricacies of the case until a single tea cup outs the murderer. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
