The Cornservatory presents this comedic farce written by Richard Anderson that's in the tradition of "The Pink Panther," "Clue" and "Noises Off." "Femme fatales and hard-boiled detectives meet mistaken identities and madcap antics in this fast-paced farcical caper," according to promotional materials. "Events are set in motion when Otis Stump, wealthy beverage mogul, heads to his penthouse intent on bribing Congress, currently investigating the health risks of Udder Blast Energy Milk, unaware that his trophy wife has brought her lover to the penthouse to hatch a plan to collect on Otis’ life insurance policy and his daughter has arranged a meeting with a notorious gangster at the penthouse to broker a drug deal sure to lend her burgeoning rap career some serious street cred."
