Moose Murders Script
The wealthy heirs of a wealthy but ailing old man named Sidney Holloway have purchased the Wild Moose Lodge in the Adirondacks as a place for daddy to live out his last days. During an innocuous game of 'murder' suggested by one of the clan, mousey young Lorraine Holloway is murdered for real. Who done it? Could it have been the legendary 'Butcher Moose' which haunts the mountains? Or, is it a member (or members) of the eccentric Holloway family itself? Before dawn breaks, there are a series of disclosures which lead to the murder of more than one of the cast of loonies as well as to the awful truth behind the 'Moose' murders. Produced to infamous acclaim on Broadway starring Holland Taylor.
