Murder Mystery at OLLI

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute’s OLLI Players invite the public to its upcoming murder mystery, “Sherlock Bones Solves the Unfortunate Demise of Elvis.” They’ll be performing it on Friday, May 31, at 10 a.m., at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 9350 Braddock Road in Burke.

The uproarious, new, murder mystery was written by Fairfax-based OLLI's own Kathie K. West. Set in the infamous Hound Dog Bar, the list of suspects is long and hilarious, including deejay Johnny Hideout, Dr. Flotsom, Lucy Floozy, the Memphis Mafia, Irene Addled, Colonel Billy Boy Barker, the singing Honey Combs and other nefarious characters.

The Blue Suede Band (better known as the famous Tallwood Trio featuring vocalist Nancy Riley) will provide live music as the mystery builds to a dramatic climax. Admission is $25, including refreshments. Proceeds will benefit George Mason University's Office of Military Services. Non-OLLI members may reserve their seats, register and pay in advance at OLLI's Tallwood office, 4210 Roberts Road in Fairfax; contact the registrar at 703-503-3384, ext. 221. OLLI members may register at www.olli.gmu.edu,
