Comedy 'Marriage is Murder' on Northwest stage this weekend

MARYVILLE, Mo. - Audiences will discover just how fun and difficult marriage - or even divorce - can be this weekend in Northwest's production of the fast-paced, witty comedy, "Marriage is Murder."

The play, by Nick Hall, will run at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 5 and Saturday, March 6 in the Studio Theater of the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts. All tickets are general admission and can be purchased for $5. The box office opens at 6:30 p.m.

"Marriage is Murder" centers on Paul and Polly Butler, who haven't seen each other since their divorce 18 months ago. Polly shows up on Paul's doorstep with hopes of writing a murder mystery together, just like when they were married. But along the way they encounter deadly martinis, heart attacks, bodies in trunks, motives and a very real murder case.

Katie Lee is directing the show, marking her second time in the director's chair at Northwest. She is a speech/theatre education major from Excelsior Springs, Mo. Last year, Lee directed Northwest's black box production of "Under Control."
