"If there's any skeletons in the closet, I'll find them!" states Angie, who then opens a closet and has a skeleton literally fly in her face. This is one of the many surprises that faces the undercover police woman who just took on a job as a "domestic engineer," hired by Dr. Hugh Bernard to "find out what's going on." Five elderly spinsters live in the same house and all, apparently, hate each other. And what a group. There's Evelyn, who keeps acting out death scenes for Fiona, who's writing some sort of novel. Then there's Catherine, who keeps alluding to her "garden." And Beryl, who carries a pistol and has really hired Angie, unbeknownst to the doctor. And finally, there's Dinah, a senior citizen Hell's Angel. What keeps these women together? And what dark secret are they all hiding? And why do they all keep dying? Find out in this comedy chiller, where you're not sure who or what to believe, who is really murdering who. And finally, what really happened to Jinx, the cat?This show will keep your audience on its toes until the final curtain. Nothing is for certain, nothing is taken for granted, but it's all a "Dead Giveaway."
