Killjoy centers on Carol, who is driven to the point of insanity by her ex-husband, Victor, and his new wife. The latter two are attempting to end Carol's $1,000 per week alimony. To make things complicated, Carol's kids work at Victor's restaurant, and Carol has an affair with Victor's lawyer. Through this affair, Carol and the lawyer decide its time for Victor to die. (Though not quite the same subject matter, is anyone else thinking of the Dixie Chicks song, Goodbye Earl?)
Jerry Mayer created Killjoy, which Bekki Jo Schneider directed. The cast features Tina Jo Wallace as Carol and David Myers as Victor.
Derby Dinner Playhouse will host open auditions on Jan. 18. More information on the audition can be found at this link.
