About the Play
An OPun and Shut Case is a fast paced mystery play written by Chip Hadley and admirably directed by Bill Craig.

While preparing for the O. Henry Pun-Off, homicide detective Daniel Moore and his partner Detective Beth Gideon become embroiled in their trickiest case ever. Are they in over their heads or is this egg just too hard boiled to crack? Come feel the heat with the rest of their department as they try not to get burned. Sink or swim, you are sure to have a good time!

Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased at the Library, at the door or online at http://www.frrpl.myevent.com/. For information, call 512-218-7005.
