The play begins with Jane, an Oscar-winning screen writer, who is dead at the bottom of the stairs in a Vermont ski lodge. Her four friends and husband said she fell. "I was pushed!" she said as her ghost rises. Aided by Kitty, a rather wanton adviser from "up there," Jane is brought ahead to the present, three years after the murder, where the same group is gathered. They are all famous film makers with an intense hate/love relationship; Jane's husband who has married an ambitious ingenue, a heading for middle age leading lady, an arrogant director, and Hollywood's reigning gossip columnist. The five suspects join together to keep the possible murder quiet for reasons of their own but their relationship busts apart with their mutual distrust. Woven through the suspense in humorous, acidic and revealing comedy is an extraordinary whodunit with a surprise ending when the murderer is revealed.
