Murder At The Howard Johnson’s

October 4, 2011 / Posted by in News

Murder at the Howard Johnson’s is an uproarious screwball comedy, about a love triangle and three murder plots that all take place at a Howard Johnson’s Motor Inn.  This production is set during the height of the Great Depression – times are tough, desperation is in the air – and Arlene’s passion-less marriage to Paul has her wanting for more.  Much more.  That’s where Mitchell comes in – he’s their dentist, and also Arlene’s secret lover.  Act one – Arlene and Mitchell meet at the HoJo’s to kill Paul, but fail.  Act two – Arlene and Paul reunite, and meet at the motel to kill Mitchell; they fail too.  Act three – Paul and Mitchell, who have now both been dumped, pair up at the Howard Johnson’s to do-in Arlene. It’s a madcap farce that will be sure to keep you laughing!

All Is Fair In Love… And Murder.
