Spring play- "Writing a will can be murder"

Director: Whitney Francis-Simonson

Odebolt-Arthur/Battle Creek-Ida Grove High School drama students are busy rehearsing for the spring play, "Writing A Will Can Be Murder" by Eddie McPherson. The play will be presented Saturday, April 29, at 7 p.m.

Aging movie star Betty Crawford once led a glamorous life on the red carpet, surrounded by reporters, movie producers and directors vying for her attention. Everyone wanted to rub elbows with her. But these days, she lives alone with her maid and rest is only a memory... and a series of hysterical tongue-in-cheek flashback.

Wouldn't you know, when Crawford revises her will, suddenly everyone in her life, both past and present, just happens to show up for a "social call?" Crawford ends up murdered in her living room, conked on the head with a heavy object. Curiously (and hysterically), every visitor just happens to be holding a different type of heavy object... the potential murder weapon.

When a library cop shows up to present a citation for a book that's years overdue, he decides he's practically like law enforcement, so he puts the clues together to help solve the mystery of the murdered movie star. With fast paced dialogue and three sets of twins (each pair cleverly written to be played by the same actor), this murder mystery farce is full of fun amd intrigue.
