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 say she fell. "I was pushed!" she says 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. The five suspects join 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.
