Grad SchoolImprov Presents:
LAW & ORDER: SFU

In the criminaljustice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equallyimportant groups: The police, who investigate crime, and the districtattorneys, who prosecute the offenders. However, there is a third group:Improvisers, who will present their improvised, hilarious, and realistic takeon the second half of a Law & Order episode.

Big spender Mr.Johansson has been murdered. Investigating the scene, VPD detectives found anumber of clues: a “Spend Money to Make Money” tattoo, a disgruntledwife, debts to his butler/assistant, and a $100,000 debt to a Gastown tattooartist. The butler/assistant was a red herring, who only ended up stealing Mr.Johansson’s gold chain, but the wife Mrs. Johansson broke down and began toconfess, until the tattoo artist arrived and conveniently stated that they wereeach other’s alibi. Both were arrested for the murder of Mr. Johansson when itwas suddenly revealed that the butler/assistant has also been murdered.
