SYNOPSIS: Tim and Flora have agreed to take care of his aging aunt in exchange for an inheritance upon her death. They are getting tired of waiting, and fear that the aunt is changing her will. They come up with a plan to accelerate her demise. The plan is “discovered” by the grocery delivery person, which complicates matters. Suddenly the aunt is found dead, and twists and surprises commence, with the biggest surprise saved until the end of the play.
