"I wish just once we could have a family get-together without somebody getting tied up!" This plaintive request, yelled at the top of her lungs by Aunt Clarise, gives you a pretty good idea of how family reunions go for this particular gang. Peri has taken her husband Graham to the family lake house to finally meet the clan. And Graham was looking forward to it. That is, until he gets overcharged by the taxi service, takes a large swig from the Major's private stock and has a wax apple stuck in his mouth, only to be dislodged by a slap on the head. It's little things like this that make him start to feel nervous. As if things weren't difficult enough, the Major, who runs the house, suddenly up and dies. This would normally be cause for much grief but in this case, thanks to a mystery-reading preacher, everyone starts suspecting everyone else of murder. And there's plenty of suspicious characters around. There's cousin Stutz, who's been in more accidents than a stunt driver; Teddy, who sleepwalks; and her husband Dennis, the glad-handing insurance agent. But guess who was the last one to see the Major alive? And who discovered him after he had passed on? And who becomes everyone else's prime suspect? That's right -- Graham! This eccentric rural slice of life is full of oddball characters, funny lines and quite a few twists and is brought to you by the same author of "Barbecuing Hamlet."
