A 1930’s Musical Murder Mystery in one act. Created and written by Carla Jamie Perez with the music of Porter, Gershwin & Others.
A panoply of “characters” have been invited to a lavish party and evening of music at the estate of Lord and Lady Delafors. Although the Delafors maintain a high society profile due to their inherited titles they are (unknown to all) broke or so they believe.
Lady Delafors is hosting the party to entice one of the guests, an Oklahoma oilman by the name of Irving Maynard Richer to buy into a potentially lucrative although shady investment scheme, thereby saving the estate and the Delafors’ social position.
Little do the Delafors realize but a formerly worthless diamond mine they own in South Africa has been discovered to have Uranium deposits. Several of their business partners, who are unknown to each other, are party guests and know about the Uranium discovery. All of them are eager to edge Lord Delafors out of the picture by any means necessary.
Between the foreign elite, nouveau riche, hangers-on, and social wannabes, everyone present has a motive for murder… and a pretty good sense of rhythm.
