"Murder Weapon" — the last published play by English screenwriter Brain Clemens, well-known for the TV series "The Avengers" — opens where any good mystery thriller should: at the scene of the crime. When Jessica Bligh, a chief constable, accompanies her friend, Diane, home one night after an opera, the two find a grisly scene. Diane's husband, Paul, has been shot dead, and Charley, an ex-convict, is standing over him holding the gun. But, of course, it's never an open-and-shut case. With dark comedy, Bligh sets out to unravel the strange case. Penfield Players will present "Murder Weapon" beginning Friday, October 28. Directed by Jerry Argetsinger.
