Current Show

This christmas could get ugly

Foul Play Cafe, New Mexico’s premier murder mystery dinner theatre, presents its latest show you’ll die for – This Christmas Could Get Ugly by Becky Hill Martin.

It is a hard-candy Christmas at Knacker AutoPlex. In lieu of a Christmas bonus, Neal Knacker has invited his employees and their guests to his family home to celebrate with an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party and Contest. Much to everyone’s surprise, Neal’s black sheep brother, Nick, crashes the event with the family matriarch.  Things get a little wild and woolly when accusations of embezzling, infidelity and altogether naughtiness fly like reindeer. Wear your ugliest Christmas sweater and find out who is naughty, who is nice, and who ends up getting nothing for Christmas.  

This Christmas Could Get Ugly runs Saturdays from November 23 thru December 28, with a special New Year’s Eve show on December 31. Admission includes a four-course meal, a load of laughs, actor improvisation and audience participation.

This show is portable and available for private parties – to inquire, please contact the box office at 505-377-9593.


  • Our next show will run Saturdays in February, March and April with a special Valentine’s show (February 14).
