Dramatis Personae Louella (f), Judy (f), Kay (f)

Synopsis "Louella calls her two best friends to an empty church to reveal her latest, irresistible get-rich-quick scheme: upbeat memorial services complete with food, gossip about the dearly departed, and rousing renditions of 'The Beer Barrel Polka,' all done with impeccable taste, of course. So why are her friends resisting? Judy should be honored that she is being asked to provide the heavenly harp/accordion music. And it is not as if Kay really has to give up her life for the business-just play dead for a few weeks."

Themes church, fraud, memorial, musician.
