About The Alibis

When challenged to find the comedy in crime, 8 playwrights pulled together to create this gallery of ten-minute plays wrapped in a classic whodunnit. 

When eccentric billionaire J. Leslie Arlington is murdered, a clueless detective finds the suspects are all reluctant to admit their alibis . . . because they were all committing other ridiculous crimes at the time.  You never know what's coming next when your suspects include disgruntled chefs, teen detectives, and vengeful divas, but one thing's for certain: Every alibi is absolutely absurd.
