The first Ridiculous Theatrical Company production by outside playwrights brims with irreverent wit. Horror show host Marius Mintsingue is killed on the air, much to the dismay of would be detectives Buddy and Bob (pubescent boys played by women) who are his biggest fans. Mintsingue's cross dressing lover, finds herself the head of Mintsingue Manor, a Gothic mansion in postwar suburbia. While the murderer stalks, she struggles to support the household without implicating herself by collecting on the will or insurance, to protect Mintsingue's live in protege (a half man/half woman sideshow veteran) and to keep at bay the forces of authority. Bob and Buddy's sleuthing unintentionally brings this mystery to its shattering conclusion.
