(Comedy) Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Go!

In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there’s some confusion as to who’s in which room, who’s being videotaped, who’s taken the money, who’s hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes.

Parental Warning

This show contains:

  • Strong language
  • Sexual situations


It’s easy to forget that every show of every production is put together and ran 100% by volunteers, so it can be difficult at times to make sure we have enough people to bring it all together.  If you could spare us some of your time, we’d love to have you help us out. Email with the date(s) you’re available to volunteer for ASAP!

Or sign up to our mailing list and ensure you’ve checked the “Calls for Volunteers” checkbox.
