Sherlock's Other Brother by a Southern Mother

This is A Who’s Who Murder Mystery

Recommended for: Sherlockians and those who like a good laugh
Rated: PG for mild innuendo

It was the Holmes family secret. A secret so dark, so disturbing that Sherlock and brother Mycroft vowed upon their father’s death it would forever be buried with the Holmes patriarch. It was the secret of ... the other Holmes brother! But when murder comes to Charleston with the annual convention of hero sidekicks, it will be up to you to determine what's what ... and who's who!

Murder Aboard the Starship Fed Ora

Finally, there is peace throughout the universe — no battles, no dark forces, no need for a military fleet. And so the Federation of Planets reassigned their fleet of starships. One ship — the Fed Ora — has been designated for just such an assignment ... cruise ship. A space cruise ship. Captain Quirk and his nine starship officers long for space adventures of old, but an anonymous gift brings more excitement than they may want.

An original sci-fi comic, audience-interactive mystery — Murder Aboard the Starship Fed Ora — now playing at the Black Fedora Comedy Mystery Theatre..

Garden, Gun, and Gin Club

This is A Murder Mystery ... with Manners
Recommended for: Fans of farce — Southern style
Rated: PG with men in dresses and mild innuendo

The Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness have held their monthly Garden, Gun & Gin Club since long before miniskirts, meter maids, and men wearing shorts replaced good Southern decency. But now the "ladies" (and audience recruits) must band together to overcome the greatest invaders to the Southern way of life since General Sherman and the palmetto bug. For today marks the first time the Club has ever opened up the floor to men ... and ... shudder ... Yankees!

Inspector NoClue's Murder Mystery

This is A Classic Comic Whodunit
Recommended for: Comedy lovers and couples/friends out on the town (and away from the kids)
Rated: PG-13 (Contains humor perhaps inappropriate for pre-teens)

Since 2012, the longest continually running show in Charleston — a madcap whodunit in the tradition of Clue!

Mr. Body has been murdered, and while bumbling Inspector NoClue matches wits with a redneck butler, a gold-digging French maid, and a hopelessly hapless hippie, it will be up to the audience to deduce the murderer, motive and weapon! Featuring roles for volunteer audience actors.

GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER

Friday Feb 28, 2020
Category/Venue: Foot Light Players

Show runs Fri Feb 28 – Sun Mar 15

Footlight Players
At the Queen Street Playhouse
Presents: GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER
Adapted from the Oscar Winning Film

A progressive white couple's proud liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter brings her black fiance home to meet them in this fresh and relevant stage adaptation of the iconic film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Blindsided by their daughter's whirlwind romance and fearful for her future, Matt and Christina Drayton quickly come to realize the difference between supporting a mixed-race couple in your newspaper and welcoming one into your family--especially in 1967. But they're surprised to find they aren't the only ones with concerns about the match, and it's not long before a multi-family clash of racial and generational difference sweeps across the Draytons' idyllic San Francisco terrace. At the end of the day, will the love between young Joanna and John prevail? With humor and insight, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner begins a conversation sure to continue at dinner tables long after the curtain comes down.

Men on Boats

Friday Mar 6, 2020
Category/Venue: Threshold Repertory Theatre

Show runs Fri Mar 06 – Sun Mar 22

Threshold Repertory Theatre
84 Society Street, Charleston, SC
Presents: Men on Boats

Spinning historical, theatrical, and gender conventions on their heads, this subversive tale of 10 men, four boats, and two rivers contains none of the above. Pack your gear for this 21st-century telling of 19th-century American explorer and one-armed Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell, who assembles a brawny band of soldiers, trappers, and adventurers to explore the waterways of the American West. Inspired by Powell’s actual travel log from 1869, Jaclyn Backhaus’s nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theater, performed by a diverse cast of women who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of subtext.
