Die, Mommie, Die!

The Town and Gown Players are performing the comic melodrama Die, Mommie, Die! tonight through Sunday night. If I can get this straight, the story is about a pop-singer mother who murders her film-producer husband and the daughter who wants to avenge his death by killing the mother. The son of the family slips the mother some LSD to get her to admit the murder, and this works, but the "mother" also admits she is actually their aunt who had previously killed their real mother. And then the story just gets more twisted.

The performances are August 10, 11, and 12 at 8:00 p.m. and August 13 at 2:00 p.m. with a ticket price of $5.00. More information on Die, Mommie, Die! can be found on the Town and Gown Players website, though I don't know where to find an explanation for the unusual spelling of "mommy" in the play's title.
