The cast members of a scheduled murder-mystery play have not shown up, because their van broke down several miles away. In attendance is world famous astrologer, MADAME ZODIAK, who has gracefully consented to entertain the audience until the players arrive. While she is speaking, or attempting to speak, she dies before our very eyes (apparently she was poisoned). Also in attendance are her new husband, TAURUS; her scatterbrained assistant, GEMINI; and a heckler from the audience, PROFESSOR LEO TURNBULL. It will be up to the young security guard, HORACE COPE, to help solve this crime.
Madame Zodiak is terrific, but really, she should have seen this coming!
