Theres lots of savvy stagecraft and satire in this sendup of bad regional theatre. The premise is that were watching a terrible production of a generic murder mystery, complete with wobbly set, overacting/under-prepared actors and technicians forced to fill in when actors are felled. Youve got to be in the mood for something like this, but the actors (the real ones, anyway) are game for anything and Nigel Hooks Tony Award-winning set contains lots of surprises, especially in the second act.
