What happens when characters talk back to their playwright as they are being written? Bob, Al, and Carol endure the rough start of the century as they are thrown into three one-acts designed for one evening of theatre. Barreling through exposition, conflicts, and futile opening lines, they finally land in a mystery murder plot. But how can there be a new mystery play when every plot line known to man has been worked to death already? Much less, can this be done with only three characters?

"Any audience no doubt would laugh out loud throughout. Howard has taken a Playwriting 101 lecture ... and turned it inside out."
