Synopsis

The holiday chatter in their mountain clubhouse is silenced as a radio announces the news of Paula's death. Alice has just received a letter from Paula that contains an important clue. She confides this to only one of the girls, who instantly snatches the letter and burns it! Alice may have made a fatal error in choosing her confidante. Then the killer strikes at Alice, cleverly making her death seem like a suicide. Only shrewd Eve rejects the suicide theory, but then she, too, errs in her choice of a confidante.

Notes

The Notes on Characters and Costumes describes the first five girls in the cast but omits the last four. The following descriptions have been taken from text within the script:
BETTY (Tennessee): She has a marked southern accent, wears a little-girl dress which accentuates her tender years.

SHIRLEY: She is correspondingly cute, with big round eyes and an energy that is apparently inexhaustible.

STELLA (Shotput): She is a heavy-set girl, the horsy, athletic type. She arrives with miscellaneous sports equipment. She wears ski-pants and an oversize sweater adorned with the college letter.

MARY: She is pretty, graceful, and sinuous; she displays no hint of her plebeian background.

Customer Reviews

"A perfect high school show when you lack male actors, 9 girls is funny, mysterious, and has some great moments. Most characters are easy to play, but this ensemble cast does allow for some real capitol A acting from Mary. Best with a box set and simple tech, it's accessible on a budget in a small theater. Some lines didn't age well, but nothing inappropriate. If your community is very conservative and you're tired of Arsenic and Old Lace, this show is great.
"
Review by Bryan Ringsted, Notre Dame High School, Redwood City, Calif.
"A well done thriller. At the various high points, we had audible gasps or screams. Much fun!"
Review by Nancy Santori, Miss Porter's School, Farmington, Conn.
"It was one of our most successful shows due to a good script, an exemplary cast and crew, and a fine cabin set. The royalty was a rare bargain!"
Review by Lloyd Wood, Sacred Heart Thespian Troupe, Honolulu, Hawaii
