yyy Mystery in Morocco

December 31 – January 26, 2013
Aux Dog Theatre, Albuquerque, NM
A KJB Production
Written & Directed by Jamila

Set in a Moroccan riad – or hotel – guests savored a 4-Course Moroccan meal. During the course of dinner, guests made acquaintances with the “Riad Madame” – or manager – Ghita (Holly Adams), her son Mounir (John Carrillo) and Mounir’s wife Yasmine (Katie Mitchell). As the riad’s Spanish minstrel (Lionel Archuleta) informs guests with his song, Ghita recently acquired control of the riad after her husband – Hassan, the original owner – passed away suddenly – mysteriously, not long after their marriage. As the night continues, some strange noises are heard (Charlie Gravina) and the riad’s head housekeeper, Karima (Jodi Lynn Thomas) suggests it is the ghost of someone who died with unfinished business. The haunting continues into the night as some shady business unfolds amongst the riad staff. Ultimately it was up to the riad’s guests to solve this mystery in Morocco.
