The American pleasure steamer S. S. Imperial is in South American waters. On board is Erich Jagendorf, a German espionage agent in search of Charles Locke, a British spy who has eluded the Germans for months. Jagendorf radios a Nazi submarine and just as he is about to divulge the spy's identity to the U-Boat, he is murdered. The submarine commander, Herr Von Stumm, boards the vessel not only to find out who killed Jagendorf but to find Charles Locke. But no one on board is named Charles Locke. Von Stumm, certain that Locke is a woman, narrows down the suspects to nine women. With the U-boat commander on board, danger follows danger. Through numerous plot complications the characters' secrets unravel, some comic, some tragic. The play moves to a smashing second act ending, and it is only in the last few moments of the third act that the slayer's identity is trickily exposed.

This play happens to have a lot going for it. It has a fairly large cast for a Murder Mystery. The cast calls for more females than males which happens to fit the criteria for every high school show that I have ever directed. Furthermore, I really was oblivious to who the killer was until it was finally confessed at the close of the play. The play also seems to have a fairly simple set which is ideal for the stage space I have to work with.

I am going to produce this at my high school. It has a lot of female characters with well thought out, clear characterizations. Very broad but specific choices to be made and the Nazies get it in the end... what welse do you need? ... And who knew this is the same man who wrote The Rainmaker?
