The Murder Room at Pioneer Playhouse
by Jack Sharkey
In this zany spoof of British murder mysteries, upper crust eccentric Edgar Hollister goes missing and his new, younger wife, Mavis, is suspiciously unconcerned. Has Edgar met with foul play, or is it all part of an elaborate hoax? Called “a mix of Agatha Christie, Monty Python, and Abbot and Costello,” this rollicking romp is to die for! Rated G.
Shows are performed nightly, Tuesdays through Saturdays, at 8:30 pm. A home-cooked Kentucky Proud dinner featuring slow-smoked BBQ pulled pork or chicken, and farm-fresh sides, is served at 7:30 pm each evening before the show. (Vegetarian option is available if ordered 24 hours in advance.) A bar serving wine, beer and mixed drinks is open for those 21 and over. Reservations are recommended for the show, required for dinner. (Dinner & Show: $32; Show Only: $18.)
Pioneer Playhouse is located at 840 Stanford Road in Danville, Kentucky.
Shows are held outside in a historic amphitheater, but moved indoors in case of rain or extreme heat.
