Texas was never this fun or this deadly. Jonas Carmondy, President and Founder of Carmondy Oil, is dead at the age of 78 leaving an estate valued in excess of $30 million. The heirs apparent are in for a big surprise when they gather together with his friends and business associates for a memorial dinner in his honor. Unbeknownst to his eccentric family, a surprise reading of the will is on the menu and murder is certain to be a la mode! As the story unfolds and the family unravels it seems everybody wants more than their fair share. But who is willing to kill for it? The prim and proper step-daughter (Mariana Hall), the greedy ne’er-do-well brother (Jimmy Ward), The hotshot lawyer (Mark Reyland), the underpaid security guard (Stu Owens), or the floozy girlfriend (Kristin Verdone.) This hilarious comedy/mystery brings to life a host of colorful characters and interactive fun.
Tickets will be available at the door, the Windjammer or by calling 843.886.6218.
