SEEIN’ IS BELIEVIN’ – FULL LENGTH MURDEROUS FARCE

In this full length murderous farce, things are not always as they seem. Will Emerson, a defense attorney in Manhattan, is way too wrapped up in his work as a defense attorney – and seemingly a murderer – to give the attention his girlfriend, Cyn Valley, desperately desires. He kills with baseball bats, knives, cords – all in the comfort of his Manhattan apartment – while she throws herself at him again and again to no avail.

But things take a turn for the worse and Will can’t hide his dead bodies forever.  One night, while Cyn is visiting Will, Yuri, a Russian athlete obsessed with Cyn, bangs on Will’s door. She hides in the den and Will hides the dead body. Will then lets Yuri in, and the two share a drink.  But in his hurry to hide both his girlfriend and his dead body, Will hasn’t hidden the body well enough and when Yuri sees it he freaks out and runs out the apartment, but not before the next visitor, Greg, the janitor who wants Will to sign a petition, and who also sees the body and runs away, horrified. It’s only a matter of time before the police arrive. But will Will and Cyn’s romantic relationship finally blossom into dinner and dancing?
