        Far End of the Earth, The         Murder Inn



Far End of the Earth, The

Synopsis:
the Far End of the Earth is an intense, but at the same time intimate Drama of reconciliation among three generations of the women of one northwest family. the grandmother, Annie, is something of a hermit and the owner of one of the last privately owned, old-growth forests in western Washington. Her daughter, Gayle, is a single working mother who wants Annie to sell the trees, so she'll have the money to take care of herself in her old age, and also so that she can put Jo, the granddaughter, through college, and thereby guarantee her future. Woven through the threads of this story are ideas about the fragile nature of our environment, the importance of intelligent and responsible actions in all phases of our existence, and some questions as to the limits of knee-jerk fundamental Christianity as a source of solutions to the problems that face our world today.

Murder Inn

Synopsis:
Murder Inn is set in New England, at the Barnsley Inn, a dilapidated eighteenth century inn, which is supposedly haunted by Marco, a knife-throwing poltergeist. A group of tourists, on a tour-Ghosts and Ghouls of New England-is forced, by a storm, to make an unscheduled stop at the Barnsley. What looks to be an unpleasant and uncomfortable detour soon turns into a night of mayhem and madness as knives begin to pop up. . .in the most unexpected places. As the storm builds and the body count rises, the survivors try to figure out who done it. And even more important-who's likely to have it done to them next? Murder Inn is a one-set, two-act comedy with a cast of twelve (4m-8f). It has a running time of approximately two hours plus intermission. the play is perfect for Halloween, or any other spot in your season.
