January 20, 7:00 pm – Andrea Markowitz's FAIR GAME
(A Musical Satire Based on a True Story about Fake News)
Lies ripped from the headlines come back to haunt five people who used the press to defame an innocent woman. The characters and their stories are real. The plot is fiction. A mysterious host invites former San Jose mystery mansion owners Mayme and John Brown, and three newspaper reporters to a costume party in a graveyard near the Browns’ allegedly haunted tourist destination, the mansion that had been the cherished home of the wealthy recluse, Sarah Winchester. The guests discover they are trapped there unless they succeed in using the riddles, Ouija board and stacks of newspapers left by their absent host to provide them with the key to their freedom.
