Show synopsis
A strange accident occurs one night in the 1940s at Chez Mort, and we investigate the circumstances of this shocking event.

Character needs
Jean (or Joan) Paul Truffaut – host and nightclub manager. A Frenchman with a thick accent.. Is sometimes slow to understand what is happening around him.

Mack – Streetwise Stage Manager. Typical 1940’s hard boiled no nonsense guy.

Lady Lelu- glamorous night club singer. Has a bit of a hard shell under her beauty.

“Big Suit” Stu – sharp dressed gangster. Bark is much worse than bite.

Bodyguard (male or female) – Stu’s bodyguard. Speaks with a German/Russian accents. Not necessarily menacing in stature. A person of few words and some of them English.

Sweet Sue- ditsy girlfriend of Stu. Dreams of being as glamorous and popular as Lady Lelu. Unfortunately has no talent.

Chief Inspector Constantine – Police inspector who has been around the block a few times. Slightly unkempt and shabby. Sometimes has an issue keeping his facts and names straight. He has worked so many cases they all are starting to run together.

Smitty: quick-talking news reporter.
