Test your wits against Anthony Badger, our well-fed detective, a brilliant curmudgeon and bon-vivant, and make this opening night a hit to remember...As an invited guest to Lardi's . . .

Darling, You Slay Me! contains three show-within-the-show musical numbers and runs about two hours with dinner breaks. It is perfect for small theatre companies, community theatres and semi-professional companies who need small-cast plays. Salad, dinner and dessert breaks are incorporated into the script to ensure an easy transition from story into food service. The breaks can be easily adjusted to accommodate different dining circumstances. Additionally, the show could be produced traditionally without a dinner setting.
