On a dark and stormy night a wild wind blows all sorts of oddball characters into a remote Utah tavern—a mysterious vagabond, a damsel in distress, a politician, his daughter, and her fiancé. A thief is on the loose, suspicions abound, and no one is who they seem! Everyone tries to solve the crime, which only multiplies the laughter as this melodramatic farce rolls to its madcap ending.
A world-premiere adaptation, this satirical comedy shifts the action and plot to locations and characters in Utah that just might feel familiar.
