Murder Runs in the Family

By: Pat Cook
Play #: 1041
Pages: 64 pgs
Cast: 5 m, 7 w

Heather Pallfeather is a modern-day damsel in distress whose stepfather just kicked the bucket. Or did somebody kick it for him? With this crazy family it's hard to tell! To get some straight answers she hires Jack Sparks, a private eye, to act as her fiance and accompany her to the estate for the reading of the will. Sparks thinks himself a pretty shrewd cookie...until the lights go out and he starts to crumble. Throw in the mother who gets lost in her own house, a cousin who's married to a known convict, interchangeable twins, a stepsister who's looking for a fresh neck for lunch, and a butler with the personality of a tongue depressor and it's enough to make Jack think about resuming his old job of writing greeting cards. One easy set.
