Age has caught up with Agatha Crispy, the world’s best known mystery playwright, as she attempts to crank out her newest and last manuscript. Senility is seeping in and the words just don’t flow like they used to. Agatha sits down to write, wrestling with her characters and babbling to her imaginary friend Typy, the typewriter. As she struggles through the first few pages of her play, her characters come to life on stage, then crumple with every balled-up page tossed into the trash can. (The Ledger)

“Almost no one does this play, it seems,” Stam said. “It’s extremely rare. When we do a play, we usually try to look back at past performances to really get a feel of how it should go. But we couldn’t find any record of this being done in the past 20 years. So, almost no one (in the audience) will know how it ends.” (Lee’s Smummitt Journal)
