Hello and welcome to Murder at the Brothel.  Those of you who know me will not be a bit surprised to find out that I wrote this play.  It seems everything I write revolves around the ladies of the evening of the old west.  My one-woman show Memoirs of a Madam which I have performed here at RHP several times and my poetry all represent a fascination with these ladies and this period in our history.

Coming from a long line of old West heroes, cowboys, miners, and settlers have long been an inspiration to me.  I hope no one is offended by the shall we say, “naughtiness” of the script and just sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun.  Can you guess “Who Done It?”
