The Plot:

Laughter, mistaken identities, and even a “sting” conspire to make this an irresistible comedy. Jamie’s mother was an author and before she died she wrote the sensational and sensuous life history of INEZ which is fast becoming a best seller but crafty Spencer Layton got hold of the manuscript and had it published with him as author.

Jamie and his fiance, Kay, are about to give up when Albertine Johnson, a character actress, appears fresh from a fire which canceled a week’s engagement of her touring company. She and her fellow thespians assume other identities and act their hearts out to defeat Spencer.

Albertine enters as the notorious Inez to persuade Spencer that Inez is real and will sue him for slander. Another of the actors comes in as Inez’s long lost daughter and another as the publisher of the book. When the real publisher shows up, the sting is getting out of hand but plot twists and the inventiveness of actors makes for a happily hilarious ending.

Tickets are non-refundable.
