El Paseo Arts Foundation Presents: Exit The Body


BY FRED CARMICHAEL

March 31 – April 2, 2017

Exit the Body is a farce that plays out in a small town in New England where a famous mystery writer rents a vacation house – a house that was to be the rendezvous point for some jewel thieves. The previous renter was the boss of the thieves, but he was killed in an accident before the “rendezvous” could take place. Everyone in town believes the jewels are still somewhere in the house. A body found in the closet promptly disappears only to be succeeded by another. Then a hunt for the jewels reaches a climax at 2 a.m. when four couples unknown to each other turn up to search. Not since the days of Mack Sennett has there been such a hilarious series of entrances and exits.
