What we're about

Ordinary day. Nice venue. But something has gone terribly wrong. Somebody has been found dead. Some body has been discovered. Murdered? The police are stumped, suspicions are everywhere, clues abound ... and suddenly there’s a twist -- and the case suddenly points in a new and very unexpected direction! -- Join us as we visit wineries, pubs, and other venues around Loudoun County, VA and surrounding areas in a search for clues to uncover whodunit.

Some will be mystery adventures where you are the characters. Some will be murder mysteries with lots of audience participation as you watch a "mostly" scripted show. Some murder mysteries are presented to you as dinner theatre in some awesome venues with delicious food.Still others are comedies and cabarets where we all just appreciate the music and laughter. In any case, we have a lot of FUN! We hope you'll join us.

Dead Man's Cell Phone

StageCoach Theatre Company

Jean is sleepwalking through her life until she answers a dead man’s cell phone. It turns out to be a wake-up call that sends her on a date with the dead man’s brother, a drinking binge with his wife, and a mysterious rendezvous with his mistress. Not to mention trips to the afterlife and the black market. In this quirky modern adventure, Jean reconnects to her own spirit and learns that life is for the living.

Sarah Ruhl gained widespread recognition for her play The Clean House, which won the prestigious Susan Smith Blackburn Prize in 2004 and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2005. She also won the 2006 MacArthur Fellowship for “creating vivid and adventurous theatrical works that poignantly juxtapose the mundane aspects of daily life with mythic themes of love and war.” Other plays include Eurydice and Passion Play.

Performances will be held at StageCoach Theatre in Ashburn, VA on weekends from October 16 – November 7, 2021.
