Murder by Farce

FARCE. A reclusive billionaire has invited a gold digger, a business teacher, a personal secretary, an underwear inspector, and a bratty teenager to his mansion to solve a murder―his own! Shortly after the guests arrive, they discover that they are trapped inside the mansion with a “dead” body, a tray of peanut butter sandwiches, and the prospect of winning one billion dollars if one of them can solve the mystery and discover the identity of the “murderer.” Plot twists and hilarious situations abound in this delightful farce, which provides plenty of opportunities for actors to showcase physical humor.
