SUMMARY: There are laughs a-plenty and personalities galore in this lighthearted romp of a mystery that has a little bit of everything! Aunt Maggity, a horror novelist who lives up on an isolated mountaintop, keeps black widows in the bathroom, stuffed cobras on her writing desk, and a heartbreaking secret just under the surface. When her four estranged nieces — Lavinia the C.E.O., Lola and Chloe, the NY fashion designers; and Francine, the amateur boxer — descend on her home for the reading of their parents’ will, everyone’s lives become topsy-turvy. On top of that, a rodeo clown who’s hiding something shows up in need of a place to stay for the night. Finally, Aunt Maggity appears along with Humphries, her faithful servant and friend, pushing her in her wheelchair as she rides the brake. “Feel the burn, Humphries!”, she orders him as he wheels her from room to room. As if all the relationships and secrets weren’t enough, more mystery enters the scene when one of the nieces disappears and Dreardon, the butler, is pushed down the mountain. This play has it all — from creepy spiders, suspense, and comedic chaos comes a sense of familial love, forgiveness, and what just might be the first happy ending in Aunt Maggity’s career.
