About the Play:

Death of a Don is a full-length comedic mystery by Ronald K. Myroup. It seems everyone is nursing a grudge against aging mob leader Don Giovani. When he turns up dead, will it be one of his children, his wife, or rival boss Rocky "Studds" Malone who takes the rap? It's King Lear meets The Godfather in a comedic spoof on Hollywood's version of mobster movies.

Death of A Don is a murder mystery with a comic twist. Godfather Don Giovanni clings to the traditions of a bygone era. He is at a Louis XIV desk in a room filled with bean bag chairs. The tired crime lord must battle a pudgy daughter who wants to be a rock star, a son who writes bad poetry, an older daughter for whom he is arranging a marriage and his eldest son who thinks they should invest in an old franchise. Even his wife is tired of black dresses, no vacations and blood splattered laundry. When the Don is murdered during his daughter's wedding, everyone is under suspicion. Add a reluctant groom, an angry mistress, a missing will and a secret passageway and you have a one set, two act shotgun wedding Italian style!

Death of A Don premiered in 1994 at the Melrose Theatre in Hollywood. The play has been performed in community theatre productions.
