Murder At The Howard Johnson's


A Comedy

By Sam Bobrick & Ron Clark

Two Acts

One Set – A hotel room

3 Characters – 2 men, 1 woman

A wicked yet hilarious love triangle involving a woman, her lover, and her husband. In the first scene the wife and lover plot to murder the husband. The second scene has the wife and husband plotting to murder the lover and the third scene has the husband and the lover plotting to murder the wife.

The play starred Bob Dishy, Joyce Van Patten and Tony Roberts and was directed by Marshall W. Mason. It opened at the John Golden Theatre on Broadway in May 1979 and has since gone on to be a theatrical staple, constantly performed worldwide.


ARLENE MILLER – Late thirties

MITCHELL LOVELL – Mid-thirties

PAUL MILLER – Early forties


Author's Note: The play continues to receive wonderful reviews. Eventually I plan to include some of them.
