About the play: It is a 45-minute contemporary murder mystery. The overall style of the play tends to lean toward the melodramatic and theatrical rather than realistic. After Sterling dies (spoiler alert) by being electrocuted by his cellphone, Detective Sloan interviews the other characters over Zoom to try to determine the “killer.” The play has a few different endings in which will be determined each night by the audience in an online poll at intermission, creating a fun, participatory event.
