The casting has begun for the role of "Mysterious Stranger" in the new community theater production of Sisyphus's Garden Party Murder Mystery Dinner Party Show. The director and playwright aren't exactly sure what they're looking for, but it's definitely not a clown with anger issues, the director's accountant, or the ringmaster of a ghost cat circus. Can they find an actor who isn't on another planet or will they be forced to settle for somebody with...sock puppets?
