Mystery writer, Andrew Wyke’s home, like his mind, is filled with tricks, devices and games. He lures his wife’s young lover there, and thus begins a diabolical evening of cat and mouse.
“Shaffer builds illusion upon reality … toying with the audience as much as the story’s dueling gamesmen toy with each other.”

From he who brought us The Liar, but a mere two seasons prior
We offer this adaptation, a clever, witty sensation
You’ll smile, you’ll howl at puns most foul. You’ll laugh, you’ll roar, you’ll fall on the floor!

Maureen Mulligan, who hides her weight with snappy one liners, has a blind date with Joe Spinelli, who has never learned to think before speaking. Not exactly a match made in heaven or is it?
“Warm-hearted comedy… A winning play, with enough good-humored laughs and sentiment to keep you smiling from beginning to end.”
Murder at the Howard Johnson’s
By Ron Clark and Sam Bobrick
May 28 – June 26, 2016
All is fair in love? Even murder? That’s the question posed by this light and funny suspense comedy about a love triangle involving a woman, her lover, and her husband.
