Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 2 pm

Leonard Vole is accused of murdering elderly, wealthy widow Mrs. Emily French. His lawyer is convinced of his innocence until the will is read revealing a substantial bequest to Leonard.  This brilliant Agatha Christie courtroom drama is filled with suspenseful plot twists that hold up still today. The climax is so startling that audiences should swear under oath not to reveal it!

When guests arrive at a formal dinner party in a high class New York townhouse they immediately sense something is terribly wrong. There are no servants, the hostess is missing and the host, the Deputy Mayor of New York, has shot himself in the ear lobe upstairs in the bedroom. His lawyer quickly concocts a story to protect him from gossip but too many missteps result in a night of hilarious rumors. This is as zany as Neil Simon gets in an upscale farce that goes awry!
