The mission, if you choose to accept it, is to eat, drink and solve a murder before dessert is served.
That’s the assignment at the Pines Dinner Theatre, where through March 7, “Mission: Improbable: Super Spy Edition” (aka “Impossible,” as in the TV series and movies) is challenging audiences to follow the clues to find out “whodunit” from among the suspects on and off stage.
During the Jan. 25 “murder investigation,” aka, performance, witnessed and reviewed by this theater sleuth, several clues were uncovered.

It’s no wonder that the “Knives Out’ screenplay, written by the movie’s director Rian Johnson, received an Oscar nomination for best original screenplay.
“Knives Out” is a satisfying movie-going experience.

Q. What causes a heart attack?
A blood clot in a narrowed coronary artery is the usual cause of a heart attack. The clogged artery prevents oxygenated blood from nourishing the heart. This can lead to pain, the death of heart cells, scar tissue and fatal arrythmias.
