April 1-18 7:30 p.m. on Zoom
RUNNING TIME: 1.5 hours
Deep Fried Duncans: the greatest thing to come out of Pennsylvania since Chicken and Waffles. Donald Duncan invented them. Will O’Tierney turned them into a profitable business. Dr. M.C. McCormick made them world-famous. Then Goldie Reese came to town . . .
During each performance, the audience will be grouped into five equally-weighted teams to uncover the facts in this clever Zoom-based interactive mystery rooted in food, family, fame, and fortune.
