OrientalRugweb2.jpg Murder On the Oriental Rug Script Package
Move over -- or roll over-- Agatha Christie, when The Lakeside Players present their new, original mystery dinner show that spoofs old-fashioned whodunits, the medical profession, "female problems," and theater folks! When half the cast of "Murder on the Oriental Rug" bails out, the remaining performers are stuck playing all the roles. During the first act, you'll meet a Shakespearean actor with a drinking problem, a washed-up former child star, a bimbo with a short memory, and a hapless costumer who finds herself onstage -- playing a man. During the "play within a play," you'll visit the exclusive clinic of Dr. Charles Ovary, renowned hot flash specialist who's secretly treating a famous actress trying desperately to regain her youth. You'll get to know the doctor's coldly efficient wife, his passionate female protégé, the actresses' hunky husband, a flighty French maid, a shifty handyman, and an inspector investigating the dead body on the Oriental rug. Will the play make it to Broadway? Will the performers remember their lines? Will the Shakespearean actor fit into the maid's costume? Will the chalk outline come out of the rug? Will the inspector solve the murder? Will another murder occur? Before the evening's over, some else will be ruthlessly murdered, and it's up to the audience to solve the crime. Prizes will be awarded to the first people who correctly guess the murder and motive.

IRISHweb.jpg Eat, Drink and Be Murdered Script Package
Our Irish version of "The Hatfields and the Mckoys" Great around St. Patty's Day, or any time of the year! Description: Grandma Rose O'Riley McFadden took the O'Riley recipe for homemade whiskey, handed down to her by her father, and gave it to her husband, Finian McFadden. He built a dis­tillery, and now Wild Irish Rose Whiskey is one of the top selling brands in the world. The McFaddens are filthy rich because of the O'Riley family recipe. To make things even worse between the two families, many of the O'Rileys have to work for the McFaddens at the distillery because there's no other employment in the area. Finian and Rose have one child, Conor. When Finian died, Conor took over running the distillery--but not with absolute control. When Rose gave away the O'Riley family recipe, she purposely left out one ingredient as an "insurance policy." To this day, only she knows what that ingredient is. For years, she's gone in and added the ingredient to each mix. Rose always knew the family recipe was a worth a fortune; she also suspected that Finian married her for the recipe. She married him because his family had the money to start the distillery, and she hoped she could eventually convince him to include the O'Rileys. Finian turned out to be a real bastard. He hated the O'Rileys, treated them like dirt, and gave them the lowest jobs at the distillery. Rose never divulged the secret ingredient and held out hope that when Conor grew up, he'd take over the business and include the O'Rileys. Unfortunately, Conor turned out to be a chip off the old McFadden block, a real O'Riley hater. Now, Rose's health and mind appear to be failing, and both families are worried. If she dies before revealing the secret ingredient, it's curtains for Wild Irish Rose Whiskey and the McFadden empire. The McFaddens need the secret to stay in business. The O'Rileys want the secret to begin producing what they feel is rightfully theirs. Family members on both sides have their own reasons for getting their hands on that secret ingredient. To make matters worse, today is Rose's 80th birthday, and both families have been forced to gather under one roof to honor her. It's a family reunion in the middle of a family feud.
