In this 3-act spoof of murder-mysteries, police officer Hootspah, tired of being a cop, decides that the quickest way to riches and a life of ease is to write a murder-mystery play. Using Agatha Christie’s methods as his model, he starts out. Despite his ineptness for the task at hand and the fact that his characters sometimes take over, Hootspah manages to put together a play that is both funny and suspenseful. He blithely ignores a number of facts of life and law in developing his plot, but this doesn’t deter him; he’d put it down to “poetic license,” if he knew the term.

Hootspah’s play revolves around Monte Brainard, a wealthy young man, who wakes up from two days of “sleeping it off” to discover that he now has two wives and a fiancé, has assaulted his butler, and trashed a nightclub. He doesn’t remember any of this, or so he says. Meanwhile, a murder has been committed. Who did it? And why does the corpse keep disappearing - and where?
