Courtesy photo Heritage Theatre presents the musical murder mystery "Lucky Stiff" April 21-28 in Perry.

Farces rarely, if ever, feature an inheritance that can only be collected when someone passes for living.

“Lucky Stiff” features that element, with $6 million at stake. It’s also a “musical murder mystery.”

The plot involves an English shoe salesman who must see the embalmed body of his Atlantic City uncle all the way through a Monte Carlo cruise vacation in order to collect. And he can only collect if that uncle exhibits all the signs of the living. Heritage Theatre’s production promises slammed doors, diamonds, a corpse in a wheelchair and enough mistaken identies to qualify as farce proper. Jacob Thompson directs.
