It\'s Murder in the Wings!
It's Murder in the Wings!
By Pat Cook.

Cast: 4m., 9w. Ever try to throw a party an hour after the host has been murdered? It's not as easy as it sounds. As editor of the Wings Publishing Company, Maddie discovers her boss has met with an untimely death just before a contract-signing party that will save the business. Tyrolia, Kitty and Doris, the inhouse staff, react with their usual grace. Tyrolia starts looking for another job, Kitty keeps trying to hide the body and Doris has an urge for doughnuts. All they have to do is keep the murder under wraps until notorious author Lionel Upshaw signs a contract, bringing about a new loan from J.B. Odell which will save the company. Of course, there's the fact that someone at the party is also the murderer. Throw in the problems of Nelva Odell finding the body, a television crew showing up to tape the festivities and, last but not least, the arrival of the late boss' new fiancee. Add a hack writer who unwittingly helps to get rid of the evidence, an actress turned caterer whose crab puffs keep crawling off, and a janitor who carries a gun and It's Murder in the Wings! One int. set.
