Murder, She Barked: A Debbie Dog Walker Mystery


poster designed by Kareem Abu Dahab

The Overtime Theater shares another onstage comedy/noir mystery by popular local playwright Scott McDowell, who pioneered the choose-your-own-adventure play in San Antonio. This mystery engages the audience by giving them the opportunity to play along by choosing how the mystery ends. Murder, She Barked brings a new character sleuth named Debbie Steele, who can talk to her trusty 3 dogs. A local favorite, and a long-time veteran to the Overtime, was cast as the lead role of Debbie, and she was the inspiration for the character and the play from the beginning.

Performances run Jan. 12 – Feb. 3, 2024, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, with one Sunday matinee on Jan. 28 at 3 PM, and Pay-What-You-Will night on Thursday, Jan. 18  at 8 PM. The Overtime Theater is located at 5409 Bandera Road, Suite 205 on the city’s northwest side. General admission tickets are $18, or $12 for SATCO members, military and students with a valid ID.
