Death and Taxes a small town murder farce
by Pat Cook Directed by Jo Oliver-Yeager
Jan. 30 – 31 at 7 p.m.. Feb. 1 – 2 p.m.
First Universalist Church of Barnard
Step into a small-town city council meeting and step into an impromptu coroner’s jury. Why and how did the man claiming to be a Country Agricultural Agent end up dead on Carl and Mattie Johansen’s couch? What roles did the fumbling town sheriff, the pugnacious editor of the local paper, the ditzy town secretary, the sleepy town doctor and the nosy neighbor play? The unpopular town mayor begins this investigation but it is the high school drama teacher who really spins the tail of intrigue. Who else really knows about murder mysteries? Follow this rag tag group of local characters as they struggle against each other to come out on top of this farcical who-done-it.

During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish.
