Die Mommie Die! Summary

Hollywood glamour meets Greek tragedy in this riotous comedic thriller from playwright and star, Charles Bush!

Die Mommie Die! A hilarious mixture of whodunits, double-crossings and suspenseful twists, where no one is who they seem, all served up with a funny, false-eyelashed wink!

Die Mommie Die! Special Information

A riotous comedy-thriller steeped in the glamour of 1960s Hollywood, Die Mommie Die! stars playwright Charles Busch as Angela Arden, a fallen pop diva trapped in a hateful marriage to film producer Sol Sussman. Desperate to find happiness with her younger lover, an out-of-work TV actor named Tony Parker, Angela gruesomely murders her husband with the aid of a poisoned suppository.

In a plot that reflects Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood kitsch, Angela’s manipulative daughter, Edith, convinces her “emotionally disturbed” brother, Lance, that together they must avenge their father’s death … by killing their mother!
