It was 17 years ago today (July 14, 1997) that The Mystery Shop performed it’s 800th show! The client was the Western Springs Recreation Department. The show was one of our Murder in Three Acts scripts “The Spirit of Things,” written by playwright Roger Rueff.
The plot: Steve Chandler’s friend Richard Holmes was killed in a tragic accident many years ago. Steve did everything in his power to save his friend, but to no avail. So why is he still having nightmares? His wife Joyce seeks the help of Madame Zelda, a mystic whom Joyce met at a shopping mall. Can Madame Zelda and her silent, mysterious assistant Barkoosh bring Richard back from the spirit world?
