That's the Spirit
Published by Samuel French Inc
5 Male 8 Female
A Hollywood psychic is murdered in the Laurel Canyon lodge that once belonged to a famous illusionist and Claire Voyant - a dingy psychic - shows up to investigate
She solicits help from Bella Donna, her nasty ventriloquist dummy Anne Boleyn (who has a terrible fear of axes), and the amazing Ernst Slater with x ray eyes
Add some bewildered police, a fish out of water niece, a ham actor, a crazed hermit, a walking lamp shade and other fun characters and you have a lampoon that is hysterically funny
Is the motive the mysterious book that explains The Great Marvel's illusions or is it something darker?
What is that crawling in the cellar?
Why are the coyotes howling?
What happened on the lake?
And what is glowing in the hallway?
The action is fast and furious and the rib-tickling chuckles and chills are non-stop in this easy to produce audience pleaser
