If Monty Python were tasked with rewriting an Agatha Christie murder mystery, the results wouldn't be half as funny as The Murder Room, where "murder most foul" becomes "mayhem most farcical." Mavis Templeton Hollister returns to Brynwood Cottage in northern England only to find her husband, Edgar, waiting to greet her ... which is slightly distressing, considering she was 99% sure she had killed him earlier.

Now Bowie Community Theatre stages a fresh production of this "killer" comedy from prolific playwright Jack Sharkey. Learn More
