SA Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, winner of four Tony awards, is the story of low-born Monty Navarro when he finds out that he's eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family. He figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and thus become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn't the only thing on Monty's mind....
