Curtains is parody of 1950s “whodunnit” mysteries where Lieutenant Frank Cioffi investigates a series of murders that take place behind the scenes of the cowboy musical, Robbin’ Hood. The company and crew are forced to stay inside the theater while Lieutenant Cioffi finds the killer, becomes involved with the show, and falls in love. It features adult, young adult, and mature adult characters.
