The long-running soap opera The Bold and the Young is in its last days: its hunky hero has self-esteem issues, its villainous old man is more interested in soup, and its heroines are slightly psychopathic. With ratings a little, ahem, sub-par, the executive producer gives the squabbling cast an ultimatum: complete one episode overnight or the show dies. When the director is murdered, and other cast members start dropping like flies, it seems like her threat might actually come true. Can these misfits discover the murderer before the show is literally killed off? Come experience this hysterical who done it with a surprise ending. The Bold, the Young, and the Murdered will keep you laughing and guessing until the very end.
