Murder is rarely as much fun as it is in Philip Nichols’s Murder for Dummies. Presented in a concert reading, Dummies features Nichols, an experienced ventriloquist, in the role of — would you ever guess? — ventriloquist Lester “The Great” Winchell. Along with his dummy Corky, Winchell appears as the entertainment for a ritzy house party. But the party turns into a crime scene when there’s a murder, and Winchell and Corky set out to solve the case. They’ll have to work together if they want to uncover the killer, but that isn’t always easy for the pair — even if one of them is an inanimate object.
