Spice up your evening with the dinner theatre murder mystery, “Death of a Hot Sauce Salesman” by Michael Druce, presented by Theatre 7 at the Main Hanger Restaurant on June 29th and 30th. You and your friends will help solve this delectable, audience-participation murder mystery while enjoying a wonderful buffet dinner!
Prescott Knight, owner of the Hot Knights Genuine Pepper Sauce empire, announces on the morning of the annual Knight Family Barbecue that he believes someone is trying to kill him. A family meeting is hastily arranged, and Prescott announces he is changing his will so that the recipe for Hot Knights will pass into the right hands. Hours later, family members find Prescott dead and the recipe stolen. Prescott’s family, his lawyer, the housekeeper, and the gardener are all suspects. With the help of volunteers from the audience, Judge Titus A. Drumm slowly unravels this spicy farce-comedy filled with zany characters, outrageous lines, and plenty of hot sauce.
