Show Description:

This hilarious comic melodrama evokes the 1960s "Grande Dame Guignol" movie thrillers that featured such aging cinematic icons as Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Lana Turner and Susan Hayward. Ex-pop singer Angela Andrews is trapped in a hateful marriage with film producer Sol Sussman. Desperate to find happiness with her younger lover, an out-of-work TV actor named Tony Parker, Angela murders her husband with the aid of a poisoned suppository. In a plot that reflects Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood kitsch, Angelas Elektra-like daughter Edith convinces Angelas emotionally disturbed son Lance that they must avenge their fathers death by killing their mother. Lance, demanding proof of Angelas crime, slips some LSD into her after-dinner coffee. A surprising twist ending has all of the Sussman familys dirty laundry aired out once and for all.
