AUTHOR'S NOTE:
While the plot of MITCH involves a murder investigation, it is apparent in the show’s final scene that no murder is, in fact, committed.

Also, handguns are not written into the text. They are only suggested by hands inside coats, etc. The use of “dummy” handguns for dramatic verisimilitude is left to the discretion of the director.
