By Nathan Hartswick


Rosemary Saint-John is a loud, annoying hypochondriac convinced she is allergic to water.  Celebrating her birthday at a restaurant with her four kooky sisters–a hippie, a valley girl, a trucker and a banker–Rosemary makes enemies with everyone around her.  When she disappears and is presumed murdered, the only objective witnesses in the restaurant are the audience members.


Was it one of Rosemary’s sisters?  The self-taught detective?  The passionate French chef?  The polite and proper maître d’?  The sarcastic waiter?  No one is above suspicion in this delightful dinner theatre murder mystery!


Whether for young or old, you’ll find lots of laughs at the café!
