Dupree Theatre, Irving Arts Center


After his wife falls victim to blackmail, a writer of TV whodunits himself commits a real do-it-yourself murder, silencing the ol’ so-and-so with a six-shooter. The writer plots to plant the blackmailer’s corpse in their new gazebo’s fresh concrete foundation. Miraculously, he later discovers the body has reappeared on his living room floor. Suddenly cops and gumshoes are on the scene and this writer of crime fiction finds himself on the other side of the typewriter! LOVE, LAUGHS, AND MURDEROUS FUN!
