Ivory Keyes, the sharp-tongued, shoot-from-the-hip piano player from the "Calamity Gulch" trilogy, is back in her own brand-new adventure. When Ivory learns that her uncle, Lord Ebony Keyes, has died, she and Sheriff Prettyfoot travel to England to claim the inheritance. The family solicitor, Basil Q. Wainscoting, Esquire, plots to keep the estate to himself by proving Ivory to be "unvirtuous." His plans are foiled when his handsome nephew, Heathcliff, a poet, falls instead for pretty secretary, Paisley Fairfax. Before too long, a storm is raging outside and a murder has been committed inside. Everyone has their own ideas as to "whodunit." Was it the butler? Or the mysterious lady in black? Even Ivory herself is a suspect! Can Sheriff Prettyfoot solve the crime and clear Ivory's name? Will Paisley find true love - and her true identity? Will Heath ever find a rhyme for "purple"? These and other questions are answered in this fast-paced, single-set, comedy. Full evening.
