Turn the game of Clue into a play and you have the masterfully entertaining 'Murder’s in the Heir!’ Almost every character in this hilarious "Whodunit" mystery has the weapon, opportunity, and motive to commit the unseen murder. And it’s up to our audience to decide who actually did it!

Each of the heirs to the tyrannical billionaire Simon Starkweather has the means and the motive to do away with him. Starkweather gathers his family and employees to announce the contents of his will. His lawyer, Lois van Zandt, reveals that he has bequeathed vast fortunes to his befuddled niece Fiona, her playboy son Jordan, his great-niece Paula (a Southern belle) and his grandson Simon III, as well as to his many servants. Then Lois delivers the bombshell! Within hours this will becomes invalid.

Of course, the rejected heirs are not pleased, so it’s not surprising when they roam the old mansion carrying such items as an ax, a gun, and poison. Predictably, the lights go out, and Simon is discovered murdered.

The play’s unique ending, utilizing secret ballots gathered at intermission from the audience, determines the killer in this Billy St. John maze of murder.

Fun for all ages!

The MRT Young Actors Guild is supported in part by a grant from the McKinney Arts Commission.
