A Rather Puzzling Murder
by Jim Gordon
SynopsisUncle Horace has died. Unloved in life, eccentric Horace (his coffin was built in the shape of a baseball) has decided to get even with his ungrateful nieces and nephews, by leaving each of them one part of a four-part puzzle that, if deciphered, will lead to a treasure. Robert, a “worthless and irresponsible scoundrel,” attempts to steal the clues from his unsuspecting relatives, but his plan is discovered, and he’s forced to join forces with his hated relatives. A dead body and a brain dead policeman enter the picture, but are unable to halt the search for the elusive treasure.
ACT I: With the exception of scene 6, all scenes take
place in the living room in the home of Robert and Susan Baxter. Scene 6
takes place on the same set, but in an area that, when lighted, represents
Fiona Baxter’s living room.
