Black people have always made a way in the most challenging of circumstances so it’s no surprise that a Black theater company would figure out a pandemic. The show must go on, even if in virtual form. The Speakers, Publishers & Authors Association (SPAA) will debut “The Death of A Housewife” this Friday, a virtual comedy murder mystery. SPAA will bring its murder mystery events directly to your living room via zoom for a night of comedy and mystery, performed live. Click here to get your tickets now.
The Real Housewives of Chicago gathered to tape a brand new TV show. However, before the TV show taping could get underway, disaster strikes! Pretty Ricky is found dead, surrounded by a gun, a poisoned piece of pecan bean pie, a red plastic cup (containing cough syrup and liquor), and a plate of poisoned popcorn. Although the “Housewives” were once friends, they all are now suspects in the untimely death of Pretty Ricky: the question is who killed him and why? Join The Real Housewives of Chicago and others live on air, interrogate them, view the evidence and submit your solution via a poll at the end of the production. This production is suitable for ages 13 and up. Priced at just $10 per household, it would be a crime to miss it!
