The little upstate New York college town where Mark and Bret live used to be a great place, but things have gotten strange. Women have been attacked in the area, and Bret is terrified that her missing best friends could be the latest victims. Mark is more concerned about winning Bret back, and worried that she's cheating on him. Bret's reclusive landlord is watching their relationship implode via a strategically placed mirror in her apartment, unbeknownst to them both. When a detective with a colorful past arrives to investigate the disappearances, this little two-act whodunit thriller twists and turns its way to a frightening conclusion. New England Entertainment Digest called it a "terrific new murder mystery thriller ... a shattering web of suspicions and deceit." Learn More

Very enjoyable play which provided ongoing laughter. The adult script was clever and brought back memories of Manhattan life. Well cast and superbly acted not only in speak but also facial expression. At first I was turned off by the set but after consideration and discussion with DH decided it truly captured the kitschy, tawdry, intended design. And the music was appropriate during scene changes.
A continual problem at this theatre is that some in the audience are unsophisticated and think they are at a movie theatre. Talking and rattling of wrappers is very annoying not only during the scene changes but also during the play itself. Perhaps a word at the beginning would serve well. It is embarrassing to have to correct adults. My 3 year old GD has better manners when attending a play.
