Directed by Karen Carpenter
With Charlotte Maier, Bob Ari, Lois Markle, Max Gordon Moore, and Joe Tapper
Joan Ross has been haunted by the assassination of JFK since childhood. Now an acclaimed reporter and seasoned researcher, she has been re-reading the Warren Commission report, reviewing old television footage and generally immersing herself in the 'facts' from that period. Most of it, she finds, is pure bunk.
Ira Basil is a well-regarded Hollywood screenwriter known mainly for light comedies - his first foray into drama went so poorly he's afraid to pick up a pen. So when Joan enters his life to help him with his next project, he just knows his career will get back on track.
Together they begin to work on a script that's loosely based on a 'true life' mystery: Jack Ruby as a mafia wanna-be conned into doing a big job for the mob. But when art begins to resemble life, bad things begin to happen to Joan.

"A passionate performance by Maier." - TheaterPizzazz.com
"Markle is a strong emotional presence... Bob Ari also shines!" - A CurtainUp Review
"Thought-provoking suspense... there is an atmosphere of mystery as the one act play... weaves its conspiratorial spell. To say more would give away the surprise ending." - The People's Critic
