Pat Cook's Comedy
The Crazy Quilt Club
Veronica Blather is a sweet little old lady who spends most of her time knitting and solving murders, most of which occur whenever she shows up. Understandably she has a problem finding a place to live. When her niece invites her to stay at a retirement home for old knitters, it seems ideal - until one of its members dies from drinking poisoned punch. Who did it? Was it Matilda, the president of the Crazy Quilt Club, or Lydia, who likes to die on Tuesdays? Could it be Clara, who's a compulsive liar, or the wisecracking Sarafina who doesn't trust anybody and carries a rifle just to be sure? Also under suspicion is Viola who gets on everyone's nerves with her continuous sneezing and then add Myrtle who thinks she has the answers to the murders! Can the Lieutenant solve the case of The Crazy Quilt Club? Clues drop as fast as corpses and dialogue races along at breakneck speed to keeps the audience in stitches till the last minute.
The Crazy Quilt Club is directed by LaMone Rose and stars Elaine Baker, Virginia Orr, Carolyn Barnett, Renee Nicolo, Dee Baker, Emily McGuffey, Haroldean Thompson, Melody Hilty and Rick Parker.
