"If It's Monday, This Must Be Murder" by Pat Cook
June 4-7 & 12-14, 2020, Directed by Les Thomas
Harry Monday is a throwback to the private detectives of 1940's black and white movies. Only Harry is more gum-on-your-shoe than gumshoe. He's posing as a golf-playing psychiatrist at the Shady Meadows Country Club. "A place where old polyester goes to die," says Harry, after club members start dropping like divots on the duffer's course. And the club members aren't much saner than he is: a prima donna club president, an astrological moon child, a Wall Street ad man, and someone claiming to be the twin of a missing club member. They're all dropping red herrings in their wake. Throw in a naive supervisor; a sultry, hard-hearted dame and a surly police sergeant and you have to figure If It's Monday, This Must Be Murder!

"2 Across" by Jerry Mayer
March 19-22 & 27-29, 2020, Directed by Krystal Donaldson
Two strangers, a man and a woman, board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 a.m. They're alone in the car, each is married, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She's an organized, sensible psychologist. He's a free-spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, "Crosswords are a metaphor for life, those who finish, succeed, those who don't, fail." Now he vows to finish. Why? He's a competitor and she happens to be lovely. This starts an eighty-minute ride described by critics as "Hilarious," "Witty," "Romantic," "Poignant," and "Wonderfully entertaining." Two opposites in an enclosed space, attacking each other's values but also being swayed and intrigued by them. They each have serious life problems that the other helps solve. Their trip is filled with unpredictable, but believable, surprises, even a passionate kissing embrace or two. As the train ride ends, it's obvious each of them has been changed for the better.
The 27th Season was an attendance record-breaking season for The Chamber Players. May the 28th Season be even better!
