Macbeth: the Murder Mystery
Parody of murder mysteries via the plot of That Scottish Play (and of dinner theatre, actors, Shakespeare scholars, etc.). Tray McBride climbs the corporate ladder of ambition only to find himself in big trouble from nemesis Duffy, ghost of his dead executive assistant Bruce, and the three witches - embodied in the one character of his mother-in-law. Was it Lydia McBride's lust for power, greed and ambition, or was it sorcery. Three endings reference this and can be used according to audience vote or to simply keep them guessing as to whodunit each night.
One of the male-assigned roles can be played by either man or woman - As that Actor plays FOUR roles (2m/2w). . .though it is optional to cast it with four Actors, the preference in this case is that one Actor plays All the bit parts/showstoppers.
