Watch out for: The Gorilla!!!
A mystery comedy in one thrilling act inspired by the quick-witted comedies of the 1920’s and 1930’s and the bad murder mysteries of every other decade between now and then. Follow our fearless private detectives as they hunt the terrifying terror that stalks the shadows. Is the Gorilla an unexplained spirit haunting this old mansion? Is the Gorilla a serial killer stalking a corrupted billionaire? Is the Gorilla just a confused but well-trained wild beast that broke out of captivity? Find out in The Gorilla! You’ll be climbing to the edge of your seat with excitement at each new twist.
