CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- No Pants player Tony Slack promises this year's HallowEast murder mystery will be better than ever.
"It will be bigger, at least," Slack said. "We've got the whole troupe involved this year. We have some new characters."
The local comedy improv troupe will perform or host the mystery/dinner party at 6 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Charleston Woman's Club on Virginia Street as part of HallowEast IV and the very first FestivALL Fall.
Slack said this is the third year the troupe has been part of the murder-mystery mayhem, and while it's become more refined and expanded, it might be a little familiar.
"It's a zombie murder mystery," Slack explained. "It's about a zombie virus outbreak.
"We did something like that our first year. Then, last year, it was about vampires or ghosts, and now we're back to zombies. People love zombies."
A pair of investigators help the guests sift through a collection of unusual characters, one or more of whom might be responsible for a death.
Slack gave a quick rundown of who's who in the mystery.
