Calliope announces auditions for Absolutely Dead, a murder mystery by Michael Walker.

It’s the rocky coast of Maine and there’s a Nor’easter blowing outside. The causeway’s flooded, the phones are down, and there is no cell phone coverage. It's clearly a good night for a roaring fire and a dinner party with a boisterous, tipsy actress, and a great night for a murder – or two. Absolutely Dead is a classic murder mystery in the spirit of those written by Agatha Christie.
