Kong’s Night Out is the story of what happened in the hotel room next to the hotel room where Ann (played in the 1933 movie by Fay Wray) was whisked out of bed and into the Manhattan night by King Kong. As low-end Broadway producer Myron Siegel is getting ready to open his latest production, Foxy Felicia, Myron finds out that his rival is going to open, directly across the street, a very big show, with a very big monkey! As the story unfolds, doors fly open and slam shut, as well as mistaken identities, pies in the face, deceit, underhandedness, and even a couple of romances. It’s a comic look at a classic story, as depicted in the 1933 movie.

A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody, pays homage to the screwball comedies of the 1930s. The story centers around New Year’s Eve at the Perry mansion, where Matthew Perry and his wife, Julia, divulge their New Year’s Resolutions ~ his is to kill her before the year is up, and hers is to stay alive through the year so she can attend their daughter Bunny’s wedding. But as Julia dodges Matthew’s murder attempts, several friends and staff mysteriously die on the family estate. Enter Detective Plotnik – a Sam Spade reincarnation who suspects everyone but hasn’t got a clue. As the bodies fall, it seems that Matthew is responsible for murdering everyone except his wife. But if he didn’t do it, “who done it?”

All parts available:
Matthew Perry – Mid 50s
Buttram – 40s – 50s
Julia Perry – Mid 50s
