A newly-married couple purchases an old house in the odd community of Salem Farms, Massachusetts with plans of opening a bed and breakfast. Although they've run out of money, that's the least of their worries. Hidden below the house is something left over from Puritan days. It's a menacing, walking, talking - SCARECROW MAN! His name is Endecott and over the centuries, he's managed to frighten away all comers. However, these Putnams refuse to budge. Halloween night is their open house and the scarecrow has set a midnight deadline. Neighbors and guests turn out to be a loony bunch - everything from a "good witch" who tries to hex away the scarecrow to a local derelict who converses with an invisible Nathaniel Hawthorne. When a dangerous killer escapes from the nearby correctional institution and passes himself off as a "Rent-a-Guest," this tongue-in-cheek comedy really takes off. Mistaken identities, loopy dialogue, slamming doors, outrageous humor make for great fun and a great evening of theatre. What will win the battle? Flesh or straw? From the play's original director, "Loaded with cartoon shtick that tickles the funny bone." Spoof for all seasons, it's a natural for Halloween time. Suitable for all groups.

This play is pretty funny.  It has some neat characters and is a great play for a high school production.  Skelton Snuggs is very funny and sort of steals the scenes.  The playwright didn't tie up some of the loose ends though.  It seems a bit unresolved.  It is a cute though.
