Synopsis:  Gerald, Lucy and Minka look like everyday people. Each relates to us as they would a trusted friend. But they have one dark secret in common. They’re murderers!

Let’s just say, money, health, money, death and money are all involved!

What the Critics Say:

  • “There’s no point wondering whodunit—Jeffrey Hatcher’s new play tells us that right off the bat. The fun is finding out how they dun it and why. Mr. Hatcher, who brought a similar triple-pronged structure to his Three Viewings, can do a lot with a single monologue. In the capable hands of Mr. Hatcher, this simple formula provides a pleasing evening’s entertainment.” —NY Times.
  • “Murderers is a delight—a very funny comedy with some biting satire and terrific storytelling.” —Talkin’ Broadway.
  • “As delightful a group of killers as one is likely to encounter.” —
  • “Murderers is an elegant, pitch-black comedy, as compelling to watch as it is to hear. The play manipulates the genre to enliven rich stories, passionately told. High-definition characters…surprise twists and sharply comic turns…masterly writing.” —Philadelphia Enquirer.
