“I have rarely sat in a theatre with a feeling almost akin to the hairs rising on the back of my neck, but Act 1 of Marcia Kash’s and Douglas Hughes’ thriller had that effect on me and, I suspect, much of the audience.”

“…has so many twists and turns I defy anyone to work out what lies behind it all before the final curtain.”

A Party to Murder

“The late Dame Agatha. . . is probably nodding with approval from her picture over the fireplace. . . the tension folds and unfolds like an accordion, revealing hidden passageways, supernatural events, and a bevy of bodies building to a superb climax.”

The Kentucky Recorder

A Party to Murder

“Playwrights Marcia Kash and Douglas E. Hughes have embraced the mystery formula with cheeky charm and skilfully crafted an enjoyable trip through safe and cozy mayhem.”

“If you coud bottle this kind of comedy, I’d take a case.”

“Sexy lingerie, mistaken identities, and male models are only part of the lively, split-your-sides laughing plot of Who’s Under Where?  This witty farce keeps you on the edge of your seat all evening, laughing so hard your stomach hurts . . . incredibly funny.

The Muskokan

Who’s Under Where?

“Pure, mindless fun. . . spins happily out of control, powered by its own momentum and the laughter of the audience. . . a particularly well-written play. . . that won’t soon be forgotten by the howling audience.”

“. . . a rollicking farce.”

The Ramford Recorder (U.K.)

Who’s Under Where?

Can Canadians write this kind of material?  The audience clearly thought so as much of the dialogue was lost behind gales of laughter . . . two hours of non-stop straight from the gut laughs, fact-paced twists and turns sprinkled liberally with sight gags and double entendres.  Just add a delighted audience and stir.  A huge hit.”

The Lindsay Daily Post

Who’s Under Where?

“…audience members were actually left hiccupping, gasping for breath and wiping their eyes by the antics onstage. . . a machine-gun paced bit of hysterical silliness—a farce in the classic tradition.”
