Something has poisoned a local summer stock production of Arsenic and Old Lace as cast members stab each other in the back and props are sabotaged. Someone decides to draw his final curtain. A pompous prosecutor tries to pin the murder on Max, Annie Laurance's own leading man. Unless Annie can prove Max's innocence, their wedding date's off. Annie checks the greasepaint and glitter of backstage life. She'll be next to star in a knock-'em dead scene if she doesn't watch it because theatrical murderers never play fair.
