In this hilarious, fast-paced comedy, the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas — four doublewides and a shed — are thrown for a loop when they realize the nearby town of Tugaloo is determined to annex them.

It was a mystery that bedeviled the cast of the newest Hill Country Community Theatre play, “Murder Weapon.”

What was in the theatre building in Cottonwood Shores that was leaving behind a mess, including overturned coffee cups and tossed trash, as evidence of its existence? Could it be a poltergeist or perhaps something far more sinister?

As it turns out, the culprit was caught after a trap was laid nearly as craftily as the one set for the suspect in the late Brian Clemens' suspenseful thriller, set to debut at the theatre on April 20.
The cast held a character workshop Thursday, March 30, before a cage trap was set out on the stage. At 7:45 a.m., play director Laura Gisi came into the theatre and found the culprit, Rocky Raccoon, wearing his “mask” and finally where he belonged – behind bars.
