    30 minute mystery comedy

    After a recent professional cast production, this classic Senior Theatre play has been updated. Blanche, an energetic and youngish seventy year-old retired teacher, is having a blast starring in a community theatre comedy. Both she and Mel, her protective pal and the theatre director, are unaware of a stalker attending every performance.

    He is Devon, an FBI Agent, who recruits her to tackle an offstage role. Indeed, Blanche goes undercover. How can she and her buddies, without weapons, outsmart a tough criminal and her money-hungry but dim-witted assistant?
