The attempted murder of peggy sweetwater part 1


The Attempted Murder of Peggy Sweetwater is a 1981 play by John Rustan and Frank Semerano. Directed by Stewart Bopp, the play premiered on May 30, 1981 at Occidental College in Los Angeles, California. The play also had a production at the Delacey Street Theater in Pasadena, California in 1982.

The Attempted Murder of Peggy Sweetwater was reopened in 2010 by Casa Grande High School, where John Rustan was the drama teacher. It debuted alongside another of Rustan and Franks co-written plays, Murder Me Once. The cast of the play was expanded to include several new characters, Myrtle and Fanny, and a new identity for Percy Saunders, "Pricilla", who maintained many of Percy's lines with a few added characteristics, namely, she was female.

The play opened on March 5 and ran for two weekends.
