Armchair Confidential by Aaron Jensen
After discovering a pattern in the serial murders plaguing a quaint neighbouring town, Lucy - a brilliant, neurodivergent, queer accountant - enlists the reluctant help of her childhood bestie, Aldo, and his tag-along four-month-old. Through arguments and escapades, they learn that tackling their emotional baggage may be even harder than catching a killer.

"Bold, fun, and exciting. It feels like a capital “M” musical. Aaron’s spirit of adventure and playful storytelling are infectious and delightful. The subject matter is timely, the characters are relatable, and the songs stick with you. It feels like it would be right at home in a program normally occupied by a standard, time-tested musical."
