SYNOPSIS: In a desperate attempt to become a member of Harriet Hammer’s posh country club, Sybil Chasteen invites Ms. Hammer to a formal dinner party on the same day that she discovers a dead body in the trunk of her new car. While Sybil waits impatiently for the authorities, the corpse, nicknamed Mr. X, sits propped up on her sofa as the list of murder suspects grows. The police, distracted by a few other cases, finally arrive only to find Sybil’s life spiraling recklessly out of control in this door-slamming, phone ringing, ridiculously fun murder-mystery parody that includes backstage rim shots, witty one-liners and a backyard wedding. Easy staging and flexible casting.
