There is no mystery surrounding the Hungry Heart Hotel, as Peter Carlone of the Vancouver comedy duo reveals in the play’s opening moments that the hotel manager was responsible for the killing spree there.

The spoiler does nothing to ruin the surprise and pleasure of The Mystery of the Hungry Heart Hotel, and as far as whodunit, it’s Carlone and his sidekick Chris Wilson who kill with every hilarious line.

With contemporary glee, they send up those Hardy Boys mysteries (the Peter ‘n Chris publicity photo is a brilliant lampoon of their book cover images). It’s a fun way to spend an hour.

If you haven’t seen Peter ‘n Chris, check into the Hungry Heart Hotel. You may not want to leave.

-Kevin Prokosh
