the play: This
is a rollicking murder mystery/comedy/musical. A New York restaurant
owner on the run from the mob arrives in the last place on earth he thinks they
might find him - the Last Resort Hotel in rural Saskatchewan. He is sure
a hit man has tracked him down, but which of our characters is it? Is it one of
the identical twin sisters? The police inspector? The older couple on
their second honeymoon? The strange hotel proprietress? Or the
agent assigned to protect him and play his wife? The Last Resort is where
you want to be, especially if you have a secret. Before you can say
'whodunit', there are complications, and of course, music. This hilarious
musical combines the winking wit of Norm Foster with the clever lyrics &
music of Leslie Arden.
