This intriguing and unusual play was staged originally at Buffalo's Studio Arena Theatre and brought to Broadway by David Merrick. The story concerns a paraplegic whose brother, a Hollywood celebrity, has recently been murdered. Mr. Hailey's gift for wit and black humor has never been better demonstrated as he explores the relationships between the paraplegic, his sister and a kookie young aspiring starlet. "Who done it", we wonder all along but it turns out that the murder was yet another example of unexplained, random violence.
"The structure is fascinating, the dialogue snaps, it crackles, you could have it for breakfast." - ABC TV.
"Hailey is a talented writer." - Newark Star Ledger.
