Join us for our 2024 Summer Show:


This hysterical show is directed by AFAA’s Miss Kat Holmes.

Exit the Body is a full-length comedy-mystery by Fred Carmichael. What do a mystery writer, jewel thieves, a dead body or two, and a New England house all have in common? Find out as four different couples search for missing bodies and hidden gems with hilarious results, guaranteed to keep the audience guessing and laughing until the very end.

Exit the Body is about a successful mystery novelist Crane Hammond who rents an old house in New England to rest up before she begins writing yet another bestseller. However, the house is the rendezvous point for a band of thieves searching frantically for a stash of jewels. The focal point of the set is the closet which opens into a living room and a library. A body found in the closet promptly disappears (hence the title) only to be succeeded by another. The hunt for the jewels reaches a climax at two A.M. when four couples unknown to each other turn up to search. With the chance of finding stolen treasure, you have to look…right? Not since the days of Mack Sennett’s slapstick comedies has there been such an hilarious series of entrances and exits.

All shows will be performed on AFAA’s Gallery Stage located at 335 S. Main St. in downtown Burlington, NC.
