Overview

"The murderer's walk from cell to electric chair lacks the raw terror of an auditioning actor's walk across an empty stage." Morgan Taylor should know. A Chicago actress experiencing a dry spell between jobs, she desperately needs to land this important role...or her equity insurance will run out. But the elderly actress she was paired with to read that morning doesn't show. And Morgan, forced to read with a monotone stagehand, is sure she's blown the audition. Sick to her stomach, she runs to the small bathroom in the basement of the theater....where she finds the body of the actress with whom she was to read.

Morgan's family is desperate for her to settle down and marry. Morgan is not speaking to her sister who is going to marry Morgan's old boyfriend. Morgan's best friend is the prime suspect in the dead actresses murder. And the detective assigned to the case doesn't seem the least put off by Morgan's artistic temperament.

And so begins Morgan's surrealistic journey into the world of murder and Chicago theater at its funniest and finest.
