A Farce in Two Acts in which eccentric Bud Granger, Hollywood screenwriter, decides to give up life in the fast lane and buys a lodge in Tumbleweed, Arizona

The inn is a termite pile, but as it's near the fabled "Lost Dutchman Mine," Bud thinks he might soon be a reclusive millionaire

What he didn't figure on is that the lodge is full of nuts!

Including a Little Old Lady who is in touch with "Space People;" outraged tourists who thought the lodge would be like the Ritz; Oysters Rockefeller, an emotional mobster who won't stay dead; aspiring starlet Chi-Chi Vazoom who finds lizards "cute"

Then Bud's zany mother unexpectedly arrives!

And did I mention the FBI, a corpse on roller skates, the state lottery, the mysterious flight bag, brussels sprouts on a stick?

Despite the madness, miraculously, and true to the author's style, all problems are resolved


"Mr Kelly has created a fun, screwball who-dunit ... outlandish plot ... amusing complications ... fun characters" ~ Brigham Young University Review
