Oliver Bestul

As part of a year-long, 50-state tour, Oliver Bestul and Veronica Swanson's latest play The Birding Body has been brought to the Rhythmic Arts Center (2358 St Claude Ave, New Orleans, LA 70117)! Written and illustrated in Minnesota by Bestul and Swanson, this 45-minute murder mystery will have you cocking your head and cackling in your seat! No matter the number of Agatha Christie stories or episodes of Columbo you’ve enjoyed, you’ve never seen a case cracked quite like this! The performance is on Saturday, February 1, and will be free to attend. The doors will open at 6:30pm, and the performance will begin at 7:00pm. As you’re finding your seat for this unique theater experience, you’ll receive your own mini case file of illustrations. This will give you a closer look at each of the clues uncovered by Bestul’s peculiar protagonist, Detective Peterson. Can you crack the case yourself before the detective and his unlikely assistant (played by Bestul and Swanson)? It’s time you start asking yourself whodunit! Signed copies of the script, tour patches, and the new magazine Wishbone will be available for sale after the show. This is your only chance to see the show in Louisiana, so clear the calendar for a farce you won’t forget! For more information, visit
