The Macoupin Center for the Developmentally Disabled (MCDD) in Carlinville is hoping they can pack the house at their upcoming murder mystery fundraiser on April 27 at the Carlinville Elks Lodge. The murder mystery dinner called ‘Bullets in the Bathtub’ will be presented by Jest Murder Mystery Company.
The night will start with a social cocktail hour from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with Act 1 will starting at 6:30 p.m. and dinner served at 7:15 p.m. The menu will include steak, garlic potatoes, cheese tortellini, green beans, salad, bread and dessert. Act 2 will begin at 8:00 p.m.
The murder mystery will be set in the 1920s where bathtubs were made for one thing only: to make gin! (ok, maybe two things) Lots of gangsters are showing up at “Cherry’s Speakeasy” to talk about the turf war going on between the Corneolis and the Buttafuccos. Just when we think things are going to settle down, in comes Harry Hyde (the famous Russian mobster). He sure does know how to make enemies! Deadly ones! I guess the local constable, Doyle Lonnegan, will come and solve the crime, but not before things get pretty wild! You’ll meet crazy characters like Red E. Mix (the local concrete salesman), Trixie (the owner of Cherry’s) and many others before we find out who put “da finger” on Harry’s Hyde! Was it Larry, The Rug? Was it Joey, The Lips? Or maybe, J. Edna Hoover?
