Murder on the Oriental Rug
Its another opening night of Murder on the Oriental Rug. The show has been traveling from small town to small town playing to small audiences. The cast hasn’t been paid for weeks, but they continue to perform because they’ve been promised starring roles and a piece of the pie if the show goes to Broadway. A crisis arises when five members of the eight member cast don’t show up. They call the director to say they’ve had it and are quitting the show. We look in on the remaining cast and director as the call arrives.
