Last Dance of the Dark Cloaked Avenger

About

Last Dance of The Dark Cloaked Avenger:  a dark comedy about death in the form of a 1940s radio play.  Arthur Warnes, the star of a long-running suspense thriller radio serial, The Dark Cloaked Avenger, is found outside his apartment, shot dead. While a police detective tries to solve the murder in the real world, Arthur wakes up to find himself inside a studio in the afterlife performing from a script written about his very own murder. Life and death ultimately collide as both men try to figure out who-done-it, both with the help and hindrance of the rest of the cast and crew of The Dark Cloaked Avenger Hour, sponsored as always by “Brenton’s Biscuits” – Westside City’s tastiest after dinner treat.

Produced at the Alumnae Theatre MainStage, May 16-20 and May 23-27, 2007.
