THE SETTING for this contemporary mystery takes place at cocktail hour, followed by dinner that begins with the presentation of the $80 Million Dollar Will from the late Dolly Witherspoon’s estate.The Witherspoon name became famous during the last century, ever since Sir James Witherspoon came from England to California at the end of the Gold Rush. His fortune was made in the timber industry that thrived off the railroads and building of major cities throughout the Western States. His young widow, the 20-year old stage singer and actress, Dolly Witherspoon, outlived him by 60 years. Her reputation is well-known, even to former U.S. Presidents that have all visited and stayed as house guests at her palatial mansion. She is the last of San Francisco’s golden era of wealthy widows.
The dinner guest list includes an eclectic mix of famous people all eager to learn if their name is listed on Dolly’s will. The suspects are an odd mix; including the likes of playboy Biff Bodine, super-model Nada Klugh, Nurse Lippkiss, the widow, Angelina Giovanni Montebello Virginia. Screams are heard just before dinner and the abrupt discovery of a dead man brings Detective Schlitt onboard to untangle this sordid and comedic tale of clues, alibis, and MURDER!.

Bon soir! You are a member of a very privileged group who have all traveled to the Louvre Museum in Paris, France to attend a once in a lifetime event. You will witness the unveiling of a rare and treasured art piece worth millions. A long-lost art work by Leonardo deVinci was just discovered this past year and it will be presented to the eyes of the world amidst a fanfare of lights, TV cameras, and the world press. Celebrities in attendance include all or many of the following: Monique St. Claire, Lance Darling, Angelina Giovanni Montebello Virginia, Monsignor Balogne, Claudette Bimboette and Texas tycoon, G.I. Luvmuney.
We respectfully request our honored guests and news reporters to refrain from using camera flashes and movie lights in order to protect the privacy of everyone in attendance. DO NOT attempt to wander about the halls of the museum, lest you set off alarms and suffer the consequences. BEWARE – the air is thick with greed and perhaps … MURDER in the Louvre!
NOTE: “Murder in the Louvre” is an original copyrighted play written several years before “The daVinci Code” was ever written as a book or movie screenplay. The concept of basing a fictional story on a murder at the Louvre came from playwright, Scott Ebright.

In this nostalgic bash, the year is 1931! Dinner guests are attending a party given by the famous San Francisco stage actress, singer and dancer: Ann Marie Burroughs (Photo shown below, RIGHT). She has invited an interesting collection of guests to her “fund-raiser” held in a speak easy. Don’t forget these are “dry times” – due the U.S. Congress outlawing booze a decade earlier. Yet, guests somehow ignore that law and get away with adult beverages anyways. In fact, even the Senator and Mayor are reported to be seen sipping their own flasks of illegal hooch.
The mood is set in this Gatsby themed play with sounds of ragtime jazz and Dixieland bands. The stuck-up, East Coast debutante’ “Vanna Teafaire” proclaims her innocence, as well as wannabe gangster, “Eddie Cashdollar”. Flapper “Faye Kinnett” is an aspiring dancer with good looks but her noodle isn’t very bright. Bruno Valentino is a dashing race car driver whose role is interchangeable with the female counterpart of the treacherous, Contessa Bellagamba”
