Lottie Platchett Took a Hatchet by Justin Elizabeth Sayre

Lottie Platchett, spinster and bird enthusiast, stands accused of brutally murdering her father and step-mother with a hatchet, and while the rhyming doesn't help her case, (Hatchet-Platchett? The jokes write themselves.) Lottie pleads her innocence. In a hilarious riff on the legends of 19th Century murder, Lottie Platchett brings together an all-star cast including Drew Droege, Tom Lenk, Ryan Garcia, Tom Detrinis, Kirsten Vangsness and Pete Zias to create a weird and wonderful camp take on all those grizzly tales of murder that have now become American lore. Did she do it? Did she do it alone? Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of a spinster? Only Lottie Platchett knows. Directed by Jessica Hanna($35 Front/Center, $25 Rear/Sides, All Ages)
