===========================================

Age has caught up with Agatha Crispy, the world’s best known mystery playwright, as she attempts to crank out her newest and last manuscript. Senility is setting in and the words just don’t flow like they used to. Ignoring her pestering agent Ruth Less, Agatha sits down to write, wrestling with her characters and babbling to her imaginary friend Typy, the typewriter. As she struggles through the first few pages of her play, Miss Maple, Inspector Dryfus and all her characters come to life on the stage, then crumple with every balled-up page tossed into the trashcan. When she stops typing, her characters take on a life of their own, lamenting how Agatha is ruining their reputation in the literary world with this last flop of a manuscript. If only they could influence Agatha somehow to help her and themselves. Any fan of classic Agatha Christie mysteries will love this delightful spoof.

The play has several characters, and ages from 18-99 are encouraged to audition. All roles are open. Please be ready to read from the script on stage. Please bring a headshot photo for identification if you have one, or be prepared to have your photo taken. Character descriptions are as follows:
