Murder Me Always is a comedy about a group of actors who are giving a bad performance in a murder mystery when the director is murdered off stage. The “fake” play comes to a screeching halt and a “real” murder mystery begins.  The “Murder Mystery Murderer” is on the loose and has struck again. Luckily, Detective Joe Mamet, a Raymond Chandler type gumshoe, has staked out the audience and rises to the occasion to begin an investigation. Could it be that one of these very bad actors is really a very bad person? Will this “real” murder mystery be any better than the fake one?  Join us for this interactive murder mystery and you’ll have an entertaining night along the way.  It’s always fun, and there are great prizes for the top five guests who solve the mystery. 

The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with a cash bar and complimentary hors d’oeuvres.  Curtain goes up on the performance at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $30 per person general admission and $25 per person for EPAF members. Tickets are available for purchase at Paragraphs Book Store, the Art Gallery in Lighthouse Square, PadreRitaGrill, S.O.S. and online at
