This exciting mystery can be done on a bare stage representing a Summer Theater, run by one Jane Bond, where a new play's being rehearsed to open the season. Mitzi, Jane's eager and lovely niece, has just joined the company. She's a crime stories addict and she's the heroine of the ensuing proceedings. Drew Pelman, the play's author, has somehow managed to sign Hazel Laverne, glamorous theater personality, to star. It's soon apparent Hazel's cordially detested by most of the troupe who know her professionally from the past. During a rehearsal, a gun supposedly loaded with blanks is fired at Hazel, and she plays a very convincing death scene---for she's truly dead! Mitzi and the local Sheriff set a most ingenious trap for the murderer. The action's always plausible and will keep your audience thrilled.
