Looking for an audience interactive mystery dinner theater with a Christian theme? Writing Mysteries Can Be Murder is for you!
Based on the novel Hazardous Duty by Christy Barritt, Writing Mysteries Can be Murder is a three scene play with dinner occurring between scenes One and Two and dessert between scenes Two and Three. Flexible casting allows you to tailor the show to what you have in terms of actors, set and props or include characters from other Barritt novels. Run time varies but allow 1.5 to 2 hours.

The script can be used to culminate a novel study or to provide a grand finale for a book club. Looking for a fund raiser - this may be your ticket. More materials on Hazardous Duty for book clubs, Bible study groups and novel studies are available here. Hazardous Duty is available at bookstores or on line at Amazon.com and other booksellers.
