SHILOH – Shiloh Middle School Drama Club presented Death by Dessert to a packed audience on Friday, April 5 at 7 p.m.
Death by Dessert was directed by Leigh Meyer and the cast consisted of students from Shiloh Middle School and the elementary school.
In New York’s Little Italy, the Duccedonni family have been feuding for a generation, while operating two competing Italian restaurants that share a common wall. The landlord was found dead at center stage, and everyone was a suspect from the old-world Italian business woman and mafia mobster, to the chefs and bumbling wait staff.
Flashing back in time, the story was told by its victim, who alternately narrated and participated in the action. The audience was able to decide who they think poisoned the landlord, then drop their votes in the correct ballot buckets at intermission.
