About the Play:

You Have the Right to Remain Dead is a full-length audience-participation, murder mystery-comedy by Pat Cook. This play-within-a- play mystery features an outlandish Southern family in a comic crisis that sets up a murder. But the murder that actually happens isn't in the script. Who did it is eventually solved with the help of the audience, who is invited to look over the evidence during intermission.

You Have the Right to Remain Dead is a murder mystery, audience participation comedy. The narrator comes out and gives you a few "ins and outs" on what to look for in the play. The show starts and you meet Fat Daddy, a rich but vindictive southern gentleman with an equally conniving and scheming family. So you know who's going to die, right? But who will the murderer be? Will it be Sweet Mama, Daddy's pandering wife; Hyacinth, the daughter who's always cleaning the family firearms; Earl the worm, or his overly amorous wife, Savannah; or Clete, the sullen handyman who, for some reason, is in the will? Then Fat Daddy is discovered, dead as a hammer. Except the corpse isn't Daddy's – it's the narrator's! The director comes on stage and the police arrive. Now you have to figure out which of the actors murdered the narrator. And not only are you questioning the cast, but they are questioning you! Yes, you are a suspect as well! This frantic mystery-comedy will have audiences guessing until the last clue is dropped and the last ham overacts.

Cast: 5 female, 5 male
