SYNOPSIS: An irate, rude, and combative theatre patron (in your audience!) hijacks the cast, the crew, and his fellow theatre-goers and winds up stone cold dead at center stage. The Man in Seat 24 or (The Uninvited Guest) is a murder mystery, a play-within-a-play, where a harried and frazzled theatre director investigates a murder--during a night of theatre gone wrong--and realizes that there is more to this evening’s performance than meets the eye.

"We enjoyed doing this production. It required a single set and very simple costumes and makeup. Characters are distinct and varied."
By Michelle Dees - Director - Valley Springs High School
"The Man in Seat 24 (The Uninvited Guest) is a GREAT play that breaks the barrier between the actors and the audience creating a truly unique theatre experience. It gives students an opportunity to experiment with elements of theatre such as improvisation and comedy. We changed our murder weapon to a spork in order to remove the use of a gun from the show. I would highly recommend it for those looking for a short and fun murder mystery."
By Jennifer Reusz - Co-Director - Lincoln-Way Central High School
"Fun show to produce! Not your typical show, but in a good way. The students really enjoyed performing it, and the unique format was well received by the audiences. Try something different! You'll be happy you did."
