Publisher Description

Murderers is a trio of three monologues written by acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Jeffrey Hatcher. Each monologue is a confession of murder. The murders all take place on the same night on the premises of Riddle Key, a fictitious senior retirement center in Sarasota, Florida.

The Stories: 1. “The Man Who Married His Mother-in-Law” is Gerald Halverson’s confession of an elicit love and a plan to shelter five million dollars from the IRS. When Gerald’s mother-in-law, Spiffy, finds out she hasn’t long to live, Gerald concocts a plan to keep her estate “in the family.” But when they move down to Florida to wait out Spiffy’s death sentence at Riddle Key, old friends and new faces threaten to spoil the scheme, and a surprise twist throws a wrench into Gerald’s plans unless he can pull off the perfect murder.

2. “Margaret Faydle Comes to Town” is about Lucy Stickler, the long-suffering wife of Bob, a septuagenarian who used to have a roving eye. Bob’s been on his best behavior for the past twenty years, but when Margaret Faydle, the still-glamorous femme fatale who stole him from Lucy when they were young, takes up residence at Riddle Key, Bob goes back into action. So Lucy constructs a diabolical plan to get rid of her cheating spouse and his AARP inamorata once and for all.

3. “Match Wits with Minka Lupino” stars Minka Lupino, Riddle Key’s ever-sunny, ever-helpful receptionist. Minka is a fan of crime novels who becomes an avenging angel on a mission to rid the retirement community of its predators: the conniving heirs, the sticky-fingered health-care workers, the salesmen and contractors and Bible thumpers who prey upon helpless senior citizens. But when Minka comes face to face with her idol, a famous mystery novelist who has retired to Riddle Key, she knows she’s met her match. In the end, only one of them will survive.

Quotes

  • “Murderers is an elegant, pitch-black comedy, as compelling to watch as it is to hear. The play manipulates the genre to enliven rich stories, passionately told. High-definition characters…surprise twists and sharply comic turns…masterly writing.”

    - Philadelphia Enquirer
  • “There’s no point wondering whodunit—Jeffrey Hatcher’s new play tells us that right off the bat. The fun is finding out how they dun it and why. Mr. Hatcher, who brought a similar triple-pronged structure to his Three Viewings, can do a lot with a single monologue. In the capable hands of Mr. Hatcher, this simple formula provides a pleasing evening’s entertainment.”

    - New York Times
  • “As delightful a group of killers as one is likely to encounter.”

    - TheaterMania.com
  • “Murderers is a delight—a very funny comedy with some biting satire and terrific storytelling.”

    - Talkin’ Broadway
