The fall offering of the Cue and Curtain Players of Immaculata University is the mystery-comedy, Murder by Membership Only by Thomas Hischak. All performances begin at 8:00 p.m., on Thursday, October 31, Friday, November 1, and Saturday, November 2.
The play features a group of women mystery writers and the action occurs in the exclusive Orczy Club in London. Most of the members hate the arrogant Octavia Sturges, the most successful mystery writer of the day, so it is no surprise when she is found dead. The group decides to solve the murder themselves instead of notifying Scotland Yard. Each of the remaining eight has a secret which causes suspicion to fall on each in turn. Ultimately, as each secret is brought to light, tensions rise and the true motives become evident. Finally, the members confront the murderer and the police are summoned.
