SYNOPSIS: Mrs. Corpse has been murdered at an upscale dinner party! Mrs. Hostess is scandalized—it will ruin her seating plan. “I never know what to do with a widow at a couples gathering!” she cries. Fortunately there’s a detective at the party. He tries in vain to get information out of a group of guests who seem to know far too much about murder. His assistant? Officer Newbie. It’s her first day on the job, and she’ll do anything to get a confession. Manners, morality, and murder mesh together in a mystery that will have you laughing your way to life in prison!

Coming up with character names can be a challenge, so when I started writing this play, I named everyone generically. Mrs. Hostess was throwing a party, Mrs. Corpse was...well... found in a very sorry state, Miss Cleanup has a specific job to do. Then I decided, why not just run with it? As a bonus, your audience won't have a problem keeping track of who's who. We're not sure how Mr. Hostess feels about his name, but as long as he didn't do it... or...did he? If he didn't, who did?
