Soon, all evidence points to absurdity as detectives discover the house to be full of secret rooms and booby traps, and the family full of ulterior motives. The Murder Room plays weekends from July 6 to July 15th, Friday/Saturday evenings at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees at 3 p.m at St. Peter's By The Sea Episcopal Church, 545 Shasta Avenue, Morro Bay.
