What is the play about?

This hilarious murder mystery comedy is perfect for a dinner theater production.
 
Rosemary Saint-John is a loud, annoying hypochondriac convinced she is allergic to water. Celebrating her birthday at a restaurant with her four kooky sisters–a hippie, a valley girl, a trucker and a banker–Rosemary makes enemies with everyone around her. When she disappears and is presumed murdered, the only objective witnesses in the restaurant are the audience members, who must cast their vote. Was it one of Rosemary’s sisters? The self-taught detective? The passionate French chef? The polite and proper mâitre d’? The sarcastic waiter? No one is above suspicion in this delightful dinner theatre murder mystery!
 
Director, Brenna Meyer, is a graduate of Black Hills State University, class of 1996, where she majored in education. She has gone on to star in no less than eleven different productions here in the Black Hills, and has directed four productions at the Matthews Opera House alone.
