murder ballad murder mystery
Murder Ballad Murder Mystery is a backwoods musical spun from legendary criminals caught on a killing spree. A lone sheriff aims to hold back the dark side while a host of ragtag demons sing, dance and point their pistols into oblivion. Set with flexible environmental staging suitable for any saloon, sometimes these murder ballads arise from beneath bar stools while other times they fall from a dusty ceiling. Part slapstick haunting and part ramshackle ho-down, this piece investigates the many the ways and whys we carry out a death sentence.
