As sure as my name is Fanny Mae Collier I know that one of these days my daughter-in-law, Hattie, is going to get herself in a mess she can't get out of.
One reason it's bound to happen is those nutty friends of hers, Bea Bell and Connie Palmer. Now, Connie ain't so bad, but if you've been following our adventures in the books, Grandmothers, Incorporated, Saving Sin City, and Something's Wrong with Miss Zelda you know that Bea's got the crazy notion that she's a detective. The lunatic imagines she sees a crime in anything that's just a little off-kilter. Bea even went and got a private investigator's license.
The point is Hattie thinks she has to prove that she's just as good a detective as Bea. private detective--ha! If you ask me, two things neither one of them know about is privacy or detecting.
When Hattie decided to take on a "case" for a friend, I had no intention of getting involved but, you guessed it, the fool drags me in it.
The scandalous affair that Hattie discovers will either establish her as a bona fide detective or blow up in her face. To see how it all works out, come to our play, Stakeout. Directed by Deborah Asante, Stakeout will be coming to the annual Indy Fringe Theater Festival in August, 2014.
This is Fanny Collier and I'll see you at the Fringe.
