Comic Mystery. 75-85 minutes. 8-11 females, 5-7 males (13-16 performers possible). Suitable for middle school and older.

In this affectionate spoof of old-fashioned murder mysteries, the Hopkins family is trapped in a house by a freak avalanche, and they're dropping like flies. It's up to young Mary and Anthony to figure out who's killing them off one by one—and bragging about it on a dead phone—before there's nobody left.
