Candlewick Players present

Exit the Body

by Fred Carmichael

Valentine's Theatre

When Crane Hammond, reknown mystery writer, rents a New England house for a month get-away, little does she know the same house is the rendezvous point for jewel thieves. The house is fully furnished including a central closet where a body found promptly disappears only to be succeeded by another. The hunt for the jewels reaches a climax in the dead of night as couples race to find the treasure… but just who really is who?

Candlewick Players are excited to present yet another hilarious comedy this coming Valentines. We encourage you to consider attending one of our two great weekends of entertainment you don't want to miss.
