Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. It’s 1952 and America is on the verge of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower’s on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy is on Monday night television. Detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor or lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. Join us for a story about love and tying (and untying and retying) the knot.

It’s 1952 and all action takes place in 3 locations: Boston, Wisconsin, and South Pacific.The hardest part of this show is that the six actors play 18 characters. Each character will need to be unique. Although, the audience will clearly know the actors are playing other characters, they should look physically different: voices, physicality, and clothing.
