A murder has happened in the town of Quisling, and everyone is a suspect. Such is the premise of the spring play Smokescreen. Join quirky officer Jack Jackson and his partner Jennifer Moore as they try and figure out what has occurred to a person so beloved in their own town. With situational humor, thrilling twists, and on your seat tension, this play is bound to captivate you from start to finish. 
The mayor of Quisling has been killed. Everyone is a suspect, no one is safe. Officer Jack Jackson and his partner Jennifer Moore are tasked with bringing down the person who brought panic and dismay into their once fruitful town. Jack’s humor and Jennifer’s by the book nature provide an interesting clash of personalities throughout the entire story. Stacy Holmes, a fan of Officer Jackson, and her cameraman James act as the press in the story, trying to capture every last detail about the investigation. The story revolves around the process and turn of events that define the investigation surrounding Mayor Bittenheimer. What seems like an unfortunate murder turns out to be part of a bigger plan that our heroes need to intercept!
