March Murder Mystery:

Death Plays a Role – March 16th, 5:30 PM

Eileen Sullivan, the Irish actress whose fame extends to both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, was the star attraction at the Killarney Lake Theatre last night in the premiere performance of Pader O’Connor’s new play, Death Be Not Pretentious.

O’Connor, for reasons known but to himself, had not authored a play for two decades.  This new production was to have been his triumphant return to prominence as a playwright.  And – in what was considered a major coup – he was able to secure Sullivan for the lead role.

Not only would he be assured of presenting a stellar theatrical attraction, be he would also be certain that the story of his return to the theatre would be covered by members of the international press.

Yet, as Sullivan was acting out the scene that would make this play one for the ages, she suddenly grabbed at her throat and fell to the stage.  At first, the hushed audience thought this was part of the plot, but it soon became apparent that the actress would no longer appear in front of the footlights.  She was dead!

Now, who could aspire to take her place and be recognized as one of the ten greatest living actresses in the British Isles?

April Murder Mystery:

Murder, She Rhymed – April 27th, 5:30 PM

By October 24, 1928, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, a thriving city on the Canadian prairie, had earned its reputation as a “Little Chicago.”  Not only was it filled with vice and corruption, but it was also a place where “Scarface” Al Capone himself called the shots.

And one individual proved to be a particular threat to the “status quo” . . .

Chief of Police Wally Wilson’s cook and housekeeper, Mary Kelly, eavesdropped on conversations that could embarrass some very important people in Moose Jaw.  When her employment was abruptly terminated, she began roaming the streets of the city, writing limericks and seeking work.

If loose lips sink ships, then Kelly’s boat may have sprung a serious leak.  For, when she has a bit too much to drink at Mamie’s Saloon, she’s been known to tell tantalizing tales the Mounties would eagerly gobble up as evidence that can be used to clean up a city.

What fate awaits her?  Who would line up to permanently silence her loose lyrics?  What do these resonant rhymes reveal, and how far is Kelly willing to go to expose “The Boss’s” influence on Moose Jaw’s public officials?  Are cryptic clues woven into her vitriolic verses?  All will soon be neatly resolved – and revealed.
