You’ll find laughs galore in this murder mystery farce that spoofs the private eye shows of the past.

It’s the story of Crimson House, a seedy hotel where the guests pay outrageous rent for shoddy service. Arriving on the scene is that famous, inept, yet very funny Hoboken detective, Hercules Porridge, who goes by Junior.

A corpse has been discovered in the sitting room, and a beautiful secretary is done in by deadly orchid juice. Who could have done such dastardly deeds? The guest list includes a mystery writer, Anguish Crispie, an eccentric young man who dresses like a jungle explorer, and a strange actress who always dresses in black. Or maybe it’s Colonel Chutney, a crazy neighbor, who thinks he’s in India in 1880. There’s also Jeeves, the butler, who has a wandering mind.

Thrills and chills collide with sidesplitting laughter as the case is surprisingly solved by Detective Porridge.

This play was originally titled The Crooked House Murder.
