    Summary Performance History
    This hilarious murder mystery spoof was first performed in Dionysos Taverna, Stoupa, Greece in January 2011. It was played as an interactive Murder Mystery. A meal was served between the acts and the actors remained in character, going from table to table to be interrogated by the guests. Each table then decided who they thought was the killer, and prizes were awarded.
