The Hughes Hotel is being torn down. That would be no great loss; but a buried treasure is hidden somewhere on the grounds. They have only three days to find it before the one hundred year lease from the county expires and the landfill next door takes over the property, covering everything with tons of stinking garbage. Harvey Monday is called in to investigate. Throw in an executor who is heading for a padded cell, a maid who can't cook, little old ladies who should be locked up, add a drunk, a money-hungry uncle, a greedy cousin and a medium who flunked seance school. Toss them together with a family lawyer, a construction worker and even more crazies and the laughs simply multiply in this spoof of an old style Private Eye. The ending will surprise you!!


• A comedy in two acts and two intermissions
