A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that sewn inside were several grams of heroin. When the woman is murdered the situation becomes more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman’s murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. But when Roat kills his associates, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues between the two. Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, so when darkness falls she turns off all the lights leaving both of them to maneuver in the dark until the game ends.

PUMPHOUSE JUNIOR PRESENTS:
“AROUND THE WORLD TALES”
Auditions: Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 11:00 AM @ the historic Legion Theatre
Join us for these three tales about generosity and greed that also give us a glance into Swedish, Japanese, and Nicaraguan folklore. Through these plays, we show how greed throws people out of balance with their land and traditions, with each other and with themselves, and how generosity-the sense that one has gifts to share-can re-establish balance and connection between people and their world. Performance dates are June 20 & 21 at 7pm and June 22 at 3pm.
