Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Refreshing

See it if you seek a short "clean" comedy/drama/mystery appropriate primarily for children aged 7-12 and also entertaining to their adult companions

Don't see it if you cannot bring and otherwise are not interested in theatre pitched to the intellectual level, language and interests of children

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Funny, Refreshing

See it if You have kids. This is an interactive theater experience as the audience are asked to participate in the mystery-solving process.

Don't see it if You would like an adult story. This one is short and funny, but it still makes you think about the solution of the murder case.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great for kids

See it if you enjoy an interactive show where actors play multiple roles. Wonderful for the whole family, lots of laughs.

Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with audience participation; if you need elaborate sets vs. imaginative use of props, set and character portrayal

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Silly

See it if you are attending with children who can follow a narrative and like to participate/interact with performers.

Don't see it if you aren't bringing kids and you don't enjoy silly, physical humor or shows with audience participation.

Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Funny, Fluffy

See it if You enjoy high energy performances. 6 roles are split between 2people, and it mostly works. The actors both committed and had a lot of fun

Don't see it if Not much in the way of scenery or costumes. There aren't enough "clues"; this is less mystery and more fun for kids. The end is predictable

Clever, Funny, Ambitious, Great staging, Quirky

See it if You're looking for new and innovative theatre for families

Don't see it if You're not willing to have fun
