Murder is Fun
Captain Brown of the Homicide Squad asks the audience to solve a murder for him in this mystery satire. A composer has died under mysterious circumstances. His son, daughter, fiancee, servant and a lawyer re-enact incidents leading to his demise. Unable to deduce the guilty person, characters in the audience quarrel until the doctor breaks the case with a surprising statement.
A group of strangers meet in a dirty subway station. They have arrived with limited personal belongings, their watches have stopped and they all claim to be in different cities. Soon they learn there is no way out of the station, and the unfortunate truth is told to them: they are all dead. Since subway stations have two sides, they reason the train leaving from one platform must be bound for heaven, while the train leaving from the other platform must be bound for hell. But which platform are they on? They reflect upon their lives, recalling and confessing past deeds of which they are not proud, hoping to figure out which platform is which. The arrival of someone from the other platform only complicates matters, and the answer remains unclear. As the subway train finally approaches, they must decide whether to stay and ponder their actions further, or to have faith and climb aboard to their final destination.
