PARAMUS, N.J. — The Greater New York Tekeyan Cultural Association (TCA) Mher Megerdchian Theatrical Group is going to stage the first Armenian murder mystery theater, to be held on Saturday, October 10, at 8 p.m. at the Assyrian Orthodox Church of the Virgin Mary, 644 Paramus Road.


The mystery, Hagop Baronian’s comedic play titled, “Who Killed the Eastern Dentist?,” was written around the 1860s, about an Istanbul dentist who is having affairs with the wives of his patients, thus creating enemies who are out to get him. The murder takes place at a masquerade party. The audience will be invited to participate in catching the killer of the dentist.

The TCA is combining this theatrical affair with a dinner-dance with music from a DJ. Food will be catered by Cornetta’s Restaurant of Blauvelt, NY and the members of the audience can bring their own beverages. There will be dancing throughout the evening. As the setting is that of a masquerade party, attendees are invited to wear masks.

For reservations, call Maro Hajakian (201) 934-3427, Marie Zokian (201) 745-8850, NoushigAtamian (718) 894-5878 or Missak Boghossian (212) 819-0097.
