February 2nd to 17th, 2024
By Otis Bigelow

The play is set in 1908. Having made the mistake of marrying for love, Clarke and Cora Mariner are reminded upon renewed acquaintance with their former sweethearts, of all the riches their foolishness has denied them, and the simultaneous thought occurs to them that perhaps it’s not too late to try again. But, as divorce is unthinkable in their circle, murder appears to be the only answer, whereupon they try to do away with each other; their diabolical plans goes awry to the extent of nine unintended victims. Suffice it to say that the police are as inept as the murderers, and all ends in as stylishly, and as charmingly bizarre, a fashion as it began.
