Logo of Ax of Murder

Everyone’s heard of a haunted house. But a haunted play?  Curiosity gets the best of the actors and, despite the playwright’s adamant warnings, they open the script and start reading the play!  It soon becomes apparent the play is mirroring their theater and even the specific actors.  When a police sergeant shows up on cue stating he was called in on a murder, people begin to wonder! And it seems as if no one could have done it.  No body, that is, but perhaps a ghost!  Your audiences won’t know who or what to believe.  Characters show up in all areas of the theater, running down aisles and then disappearing.  You never know what will happen next when you see Ax of MurderFun for the whole family, this play is suitable for family members of all ages!
