Butler Little Theatre presents 'Murder at the Howard Johnson's'
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
04 Oct 2008
All is fair in love? Even murder? That's the question posed by this light and funny suspense comedy by Ron Clark and Sam Bobrick, about a love triangle in a Howard Johnson Motor Inn. Mitchell, an obvious, philandering dentist and self-appointed 'dashing hero' and Arlene, a self-indulgent, middle aged 'femme fatale' of sorts, plan to murder her husband Paul, a blundering used car salesman. But when Arlene learns that her lover has been unfaithful, she allies herself with her husband to do away with him. In yet another turn, the two men, feeling foolish and betrayed, join forces against Arlene. A metaphor for a mixed-up value system, this play will take you through a hilarious series of homicidal mishaps where anyone could end up dead.
Admission: $10.00
The show runs October 3-5, 7-11, 2008. Curtain times are Fridays/Saturdays at 8:15 p.m.; Sunday at 2:30 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
