Professor Kleine, a creative literature instructor, has a rather unusual final exam. He sets up a murder in his own home and has his students try to solve it. Somewhere along the way, however, one of the students begins to wonder if it really is just an assignment or if a real murder has taken place. But when another student is killed, it really gets serious. Part of the final? Or actual homicides. Who is really dead? And who is the murderer? The surprising ending will simply kill you! Please take note that this show discusses the topics of homicide and will use prop weapons in production.  

Additional questions may be sent to the director at   

The Long Red Herring is written by Pat Cook. Special arrangements by Dramatic Publishing.  

Second Street Players values diversity and inclusion in casting, and in all other areas of production. The show is supported, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowments of the Arts.
