Description

Hailed by critics and audiences, John Bishop’s ingenious and wildly comic romp poking fun at the ridiculous aspects of show biz and the corny thrillers of Hollywood's heyday. The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop, in which three chorus girls were murdered, assemble for a backer's audition of their new show at the estate of a wealthy "angel." As the composer, lyricist, actors, and director prepare their performance, bodies start to drop and accusing fingers point in all directions. A cross between Agatha Christie and Charles Ludlam - seasoned with a dash of Noises Off - the play is a non-stop barrage of laughter as those assembled (or at least those who aren't killed off) untangle the mystery of the "Stage Door Slasher" - but not before the audience has been treated to a sidesplitting good time and a generous serving of the author's biting, satiric and refreshingly irreverent wit.
