June 4 – 6 AND 11 & 12, 2021
Playwright Terence O’Keefe has a new play, and wants the family of a former student
to back it. But the “family” turns out to be minor Mafia godfathers who like the idea,

make a few “minor” changes. The fact that the lusty, unmarried daughter of the house
(his former student) is hotly pursuing the playwright only makes life more complicated.
And Terry’s play? It’s about a murder!
