Postmortem - Blue Ridge Community Theater 2591 East 1st Street across from The Swan Drive-In
By Ken Ludwig.

Here, an avid Sherlock Holmes actor has invited guests for a séance. The scene is set for murder, humor and intrigue and the actor works to solve the case himself, à la his alter-ego, Sherlock Holmes.

By Tom Ziegler. Grace is Velveeta and Wonder Bread and Gloria is Brie and lobster. Grace can’t read or write and Gloria can't figure out Grace’s wood stove. Gloria volunteers for Hospice, an organization that, among other things, helps the terminally ill live their last days comfortably. Grace is her uncooperative new assignment.
