BWW Reviews: MURDER FOR DUMMIES - Fun Despite Flaws
by David Clarke - Sep 14, 2012

On a dark and stormy night, Philip L. Nichols, Jr.'s MURDER FOR DUMMIES had its world premiere at the Country Playhouse as part of their murder mystery desert theatre that is catered and sponsored by Brio Tuscan Grille. The play is a comedic murder mystery and revels in its genre cliches. The plot of the show follows the gathering of a wealthy family to hear the reading of a will. Each member of the family and assorted acquaintances has a lot to gain from the murders, giving rise to plenty of suspicion and possible motives. So where do a ventriloquist and his dummy fit into this assembled group? Patriarch of the family, William Vanderby, has invited him to provide entertainment over the course of the weekend. Once the group is assembled at the Vanderby mansion, a hurricane barrels through and messes with the unstable power grid, and a classic 1930s murder mystery set unfolds. (more...)
