Found unconscious and clutching a gun beside her dead lover, the Beaurevers’ parlor maid, Josefa, is brought before the magistrate on a charge of murder. Upon his questioning, the magistrate finds Josefa’s guileless demeanor so ingenuous that he decides she may not have committed the murder in spite of all appearances. As the investigation is expanded, other suspects appear in the quest to determine if somebody else could have fired that fatal shot in the dark.
Perusal copies of the script will be placed at both the Hyannis and Sturgis Library by December 10th.
