A Murder of Scarecrows

by Pat Cook

STORY OF THE PLAY:

Gerald and Cristine Dandridge always give a Halloween party for their friends. This year, however, they’re having the party at their country house. It’s a nice little fixer-upper with all the conveniences and one haunted scarecrow. The night of the party, everyone’s having a good time until someone notices … the scarecrow has vanished! When it finally DOES turn up, it's carrying an AXE!!!  ...  Yes, indeed. This time it’s personal.
