Roommates Ann, Rita, Gertrude, Alice and Carrie are former players of the all-female baseball team, The Chesapeake Chicks. When they return from Ann’s funeral, their caretaker Matthew presents them with Ann’s found journal, with a cryptic final message: ““If I die tomorrow, know that someone here killed me.” The entire house is turned upside down as everyone tries to figure out who did it – will they discover the truth before the killer strikes again? Come join the madness in this new rollicking comedy written and directed by Peter Zachari.
