"If you enjoy death humor and musical theater, look no further for a little demented, first-class entertainment." --Sharon Nichols, Chronogram
A mysterious corpse is knocking about Victorian London, and two unscrupulous cousins are desperately trying to find it - except when they're desperately trying to lose it!
If the corpse in the train wreck turns out to be Uncle Joseph then Cousin Michael gets the family fortune, unless Cousin Morris can dispose of the body before he gets there.
From pillar to post, from packing-case to piano, the hapless heirs scramble to keep up with the vanishing cadaver in this musical adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic farce.
