The Burgundy Wine Mob
It's the late 1930's. A Bunch of dangerous characters have come together at the Bongo Bongo Club all with the same goal in mind; getting their hands on a pile of money that was illegally obtained by the Burgundy Wine Mob. The Mob, Jones, Max and Johnnie swiped a priceless wine collection and Johnnie took charge of fencing it for three million dollars. Unfortunately for the others he disappeared with the cash. Johnnie has been rubbed out and it seems that nobody knows who killed him or where the cash got to.
Johnnie's girl friend shows up with a key he gave her before his untimely death. What's it for? Even she doesn't know. Maybe the answer is at the Bongo Bongo Club. Everyone at the club this night knows she has this key. Everybody wants that money. Nobody is safe.
During intermission audience members get chance to guess who done it and find out who is the best sleuth in the joint.
