Synopsis

MURDER AT THE HOWARD JOHNSON’S
By Ron Clark & Sam Bobrick
Directed by Jade Nicholas

March 26-30, 2014

All’s fair in love?  Even murder?  That’s the question posed by this light and funny suspense comedy about a love triangle, all taking place at a Howard Johnson’s Motor Inn, involving a woman, her lover and her husband.

What can you do with a wife who wants to divorce one minute, then loves you the next?  Arlene cannot decide whether to stay with Paul, her dumpy car-salesman husband, or leave him for Mitchell, their dentist, who has swept her off her feet.  Arlene and Mitchell finally conspire to murder Paul at the local Howard Johnson’s Motel.  Scene Two has Arlene and Paul plotting to do away with Mitchell; Scene Three has Paul and Mitchell planning to eliminate Arlene.  With several hilarious twists and turns, this clueless threesome leave us wondering who hates who, who loves who, and who can really pull off the said “murder”.

An experienced cast will leave you in stitches, including Marilyn Marshall-Six (Murder’s Bad, But Monday Can Kill You ’13; Gypsy ’13; Miracle on 34th Street ’13) as Arlene; Richard H. Roberts (The Rocky Horror Show ’13; The Mousetrap ’14) as Mitchell; Roscoe Miller (newcomer to the JLT stage) as Paul.

Director Jade Nicholas has also gathered a top-notch group of backstage personnel to keep the show running smoothly: Lacy Smith-Baum, Stage Manager; Cassie Lynch, Costume Designer; Shelly Keezer, Lighting Designer; Brenda Jackson, Props Design; Karsten Nicholas, Set Design.

There is some profanity in the show and the material is considered mature; not suitable for children.
Since our last three shows have been sell-outs, we strongly rcommend getting your reservations in early!
