Murder at the Pie Auction

By: Michael Druce

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: 6F, 4M, 4 M or F
Time: About 45 minutes

The audience becomes part of the pie auction in this dual parody of Hell’s Kitchen and Northern Exposure. After years of trying unsuccessfully, the town of Mynute, Alaska, finally lands famous Mother Mabel’s Pie Baking Competition. But it was all due to a typo mistaking Mynute for Minot. The contest looks to be a disaster with no media or publicity. One of the contestants is writing a tell-all book about the seamy side of pie baking. Hours before it begins, the pie judge goes missing and turns up dead while the audience is bidding for the pies. With an ample serving of motive and all the right ingredients for murder, this is the perfect dinner theatre recipe for big laughs, outrageous characters, and audience participation. A wild pie baking free-for-all! Perfect as a fundraiser. One set.
