A dark and witty farce, Jack Sharkey tells the story of what happens once the honeymoon ends for a newly married couple.
The Murder Room
By Jack Sharkey
Directed by Moy Hinojos
Written by Jack Sharkey, accomplished playwright, science fiction writer, and army veteran, The Murder Room: A Mystery Farce is exactly that. In this dark and witty farce, Sharkey tells the story of what happens once the honeymoon ends for a newly married couple. Filled with twists and turns, laughter and gasps of shock, the Murder Room is a must see. With a wide array of colorful characters, Sharkey takes you on a journey filled with blame and mistrust. That’s what happens when a distinguished member of the landed gentry, his new bride, the gentleman’s college age daughter and her new American fiancee, a faithful housekeeper, and a witless police constable all must join together to solve a crime. This unlikely group must hilariously gather the clues to solve a mystery that just seems to keep asking more questions with every answer found. Times says: “Murder has never been this funny. A spoof of all crime thrillers...it is good clean mirth all the way.” Content Warning: Gunshots are fired during the course of the play.
