Murder at Crooked House

Murder at Crooked House – February 27-March 8, 2015 at Studio 3 Artspace Theater

Crooked House is a seedy hotel where the guests pay outrageous rent for shoddy service.  Actually, what they are paying is — BLACKMAIL!  Arriving on the scene is that famous Hoboken detective, Hercules Porridge.  The guest list includes a mystery writer, Anguish Crispie, an eccentric young man who dresses like a jungle explorer, and a strange actress who always dresses in black.  Thrills and chills collide with sidesplitting laughter as the case is surprisingly solved by Detective Porridge.
