This strictly-limited 4-week engagement will run March 6-April 1, 2023 at the Lucille Lortel Theater, NYC.

It’s Valentine’s Day and Alice Arden wants her husband dead. He’s come into money and all she can think about is her lover, Mosby. So, the pair enter into a pact to murder Arden and engage a cluster of killers to do the deed. If only they weren’t so spectacularly inept. Inspired by actual events, this sexy thriller of unknown authorship – some say, Shakespeare – is a bloody, darkly comic Elizabethan noir.
