A Nero Wolfe Mystery
Based on a novel by REX STOUT
Adapted for the stage by JOSEPH GOODRICH
Directed by PETER MOORE
Two pounds of candied fruits, nuts and creams - laced with potassium cyanide. A lovely, young woman is dead, and the fortunes of a theatrical producer depend on solving the mystery. The police aren't getting anywhere, so it is time to call Nero Wolfe - an eccentric detective genius who rarely leaves his comfortable brownstone in Manhattan. While maintaining an unbending schedule of tending his 10,000 orchids and dining on fine cuisine, Wolfe and his wise-cracking sidekick, Archie, solve a crime that seems unsolvable.
Why go? To meet Nero Wolfe, the love child of Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler.
Who should you bring? The mystery fan who can't get enough of drawing room whodunits, period clothes and eccentric detectives.
