Synopsis

The scene is the set where Anthony J Lefcourt writer and director, is rehearsing his new play, a classic whodunit with which he hopes to regain the success that has eluded him in recent seasons. Desperately eager to stimulate his cast to their best efforts, he has deliberately withheld the final scene of the play from them, but his patience is worn thin by the petty jealousies and romantic rivalries that detract from their concentration. In an effort to spur them on he stages the murder of the actresses, after which the plot begins to twist and turn with such dazzling ingenuity and hilarity.
