paper chairs’ Murder Ballad Murder Mystery is back from the dead for limited run!
For three nights only, our legendary outlaws will resurrect in east Austin for a lightning round of existential haunting. Join us Sept 27-29 as we transform local artist Ryan McKerley’s studio into a ghost town where demons wreck havoc ‘til no one is left standing.
This backwoods musical, written by local playwright and paper chair company member Elizabeth Doss, features live music, dance numbers, bawdy bad guys, and a lone sheriff trying to catch legendary criminals in their tracks. Part slapstick exorcism and part ramshackle hoedown, this play investigates the many ways and whys we carry out a death sentence. It’s “overwhelmingly entertaining… [with] many quirky, oddball moments that make the show great.” (Broadway World fall 2013 review.)
Our stellar ensemble features both new and returning cast members:
Noel Gaulin as Stagger Lee, Kelli Bland as the Sheriff, April Perez Moore as Felicity,
Laura Freeman as Tom’s Wife, Elizabeth Doss as Bea, Mark Stewart as Tom, Rachel Dendy as Sadie.
And Introducing: Patrick Shaw as Jay.
Script and book by Elizabeth Doss
