The Francis Howell High School’s Award Winning Limelight Theatre proudly presents their Fall Production of the 2009 play Kill Me, Deadly, by Bill Robens.

Set in 1947 Hollywood, Charlie Nickels has a hard life as a gumshoe in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, and things are only made harder by the murder of a client and the theft of her 300-karat diamond. With the help of his wise-cracking secretary, Ida, Charlie seeks out the many suspects: swarmy bookworm Clive, equestrian beauty Veronica, snooty butler Wilson, sensitive muscle Louis, and mob boss Bugsy Siegel. At the center of the case is femme fatale Mona, a nightclub singer who captures Charlie’s affections… and suspicions. Packed with romance, intrigue, and murder, this detective noir is a smart parody that will keep you guessing until the end. Playscripts, Inc.
Performances of Kill Me, Deadly take place at 7 pm each night, November 8, November 10 and November 11. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Tickets are $5 per person for all shows and are available at the door.
