LEWISTON – Mystery for Hire will continue murder-mystery dinner theater at Marco’s Restaurant Saturday, March 28, with a repeat performance of “Murder at the Last Chance Pump & Grill.”

The script, written by David Landau, takes place at the Last Chance Bar and Grill in a remote Southwestern roadside café. “The café is rather deserted ever since they did the atomic bomb testing nearby,” said Dan Marois, who with his wife, Denise, owns and operates Mystery for Hire. “The characters that remain are an odd mix of folks who find themselves drawn to the only road-stop bar and grill in the area.”

The café is run by Veronica (Julie Poulin of Monmouth) and her husband, Kurt, who provide hospitality to anyone who stops by the place for coffee or a snack.

When a hitchhiking drifter, Jack (Chuck Waterman of Gorham), and a pair of Russian spies, Boris (Dan Marois of Poland) and Natasha (Kathleen Nation of Monmouth) drop by, there are twists and turns with everyone trying to find a hidden silver mine.

The show also features a stranded bus tour operator, Rebecca (Katie Marois of Poland), and a comatose banker, Mr. Withers (Brian Files).

Tickets are $36.95 per person, which includes a full buffet, mystery show, tax and gratuity. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Marco’s is on Mollison Way. For reservations, call 783-0336.
