IT'S MURDER, MARY!
Written in collaboration with Patricia Milton
Agatha Christie meets Paul Rudnick in this old dark house murder mystery. A group of disparate men, all gay, are invited under mysterious circumstances to a country estate. Each one has a secret. When the invitees begin to die one by one, the dwindling number of survivors must determine who among their numbers is responsible for the mayhem. The youngest and the oldest guests must overcome their natural mistrust of each other to survive or else: It’s Murder, Mary!
Hilarious, high-spirited fun for everyone. . . Irresistible! The Playwrights Andrew Black and Patricia Milton bring back the lost art of Story Telling. Can’t wait for their next one. FOUR GLASSES OF CHAMPAGNE!!!! (highest rating)

Bloody Good MARY: Intentional camp is tough to pull off. But the minor genius of this show—commissioned by NCTC and written by Andrew Black and Patricia Milton—is that it’s smart enough to know exactly how stupid it is.
