It’s the summer of 1932 on Mount Desert Island, Maine. Prohibition is in effect and the tourists are thirsty. Cars are faster and bank robbers are taking the Midwest by storm. The police are out gunned, and the newspapers are poking fun. J. Edgar Hoover has decided Dillinger is public enemy number one.

Winston Peabody, a wealthy manufacturer of automobiles, has recently come to Bar Harbor for vacation with his wife. Winston plans to launch an advertising campaign for his new car models and has invited two, competing illustrators to visit with him and his wife while they are in Bar Harbor. But their plans go awry when a murder occurs!

The Seal Cove Auto Museum presents The Fine Art of Murder, an original murder mystery by authors/playwrights Robert and Robin Lawton. The events of this play will unfold before your eyes during the course of the evening, and it is up to YOU to follow the clues and determine the killer, while enjoying dinner among the Museum’s collection of elegant antique cars.

The evening will include a seated dinner, our signature Rusticator Rum punch cocktail, prizes for those who determine the killer, and commemorative wine glasses to take home. Period costumes encouraged but optional. $100 for members, $125 for non-members. You may purchase your tickets below, or call 207-244-9242 to reserve your space now!
