From Dramatists Play Service:
Fed up with the pressures and demands of her acting career, the famous Myra Marlowe leases a house
in the tiny New England hamlet of Beaver Haven and settles down to write her autobiography. She is
successful in turning aside the offers pressed on her by her long-time agent, but dealing with her
nosy, omnipresent neighbors is a different matter. In an attempt to shoo them away, and gain some
privacy, Myra invents a mad, homicidal sister—who is kept locked in an upstairs room, but who
occasionally escapes long enough to scare off uninvited visitors. The ruse works well, at first,
but complications result when the local handyman develops an affection for "Sister Sadie" (really
Myra in a fright wig) and some of the more officious ladies decide it is their Christian duty to save
the poor demented Sadie's soul. In desperation Myra announces that her imaginary sibling has suddenly
gone off to Boston—which brings on the sheriff and the suspicion of murder! Needless to say, all is
straightened out in the end, but the uproarious doings will keep audiences laughing right up to the
final curtain, and then some.
From the Director:
It has been an absolute joy and privilege to have directed this show. To this talented group of actors
and a hard working cooperative crew, my heartfelt thanks.
