My health isn’t good and I am the only caregiver for my disabled mother so apart from the grocery store and doctors’ appointments there are times I don’t leave the house. And since I don’t watch much TV I end up spending a lot of time at the computer. So for the past year and a half or so I have been writing a murder mystery stage play that I may be able to submit to a local amateur theater group. The story is set in a nursing home. The murder victim is an elderly judge whose wife found out after he had a stroke that he has been cheating on her the whole time they were married and has been paying his mistress a fortune in child support to keep her quiet. But the wife used to be the fiancé of one of the other residents of the nursing home and she dumped him and took up with the judge while he was presiding over a lawsuit the fiancé had with a business partner. It ends up that the director of the nursing home had gone out of her way get the judge’s wife to place him in this particular nursing home so the audience will think she lured him to his death. And it turns out that either the head nurse or the social activities director at the nursing home (I haven’t decided which yet) is the judge’s illegitimate daughter. Now my problem is having a way to let the audience know all of this without simply having a character explain it, and I want the only stage setting to be the dining hall of the nursing home so doing anything at a police station or an office at the nursing home is not possible. Anyone have any ideas?
