Actors love to perform in farce. It gives them the opportunity to use their broad acting skills and play bigger-than-life characters. Everyone and everything in Who Killed the Tax Man? is bigger than life. Several characters think they have accidentally murdered the unwanted Tax Man. Their first reaction is panic. Then greed for his money sets in. Then comes the necessity of getting the Tax Man’s body off of their property. By thefinal scene, everyone is feeling guilty and wants to confess to the killing. It’s a merry romp for both actors and audiences. Who Killed the Tax Man? is also a wonderful vehicle for stage competitions, having a compact number of characters, one set of costumes, and minimal production demands. Treat your performers and audiences to the joys of farce!
