"The Butler Did It" parodies every English mystery play ever written, but it has a decidedly American flair. Miss Maple, a society dowager with a reputation for "clever" weekend parties, invites a group of mystery writers to eerie Ravenswood Manor on Turkey Island off the coast of San Francisco, where they are to impersonate their fictional characters. The hostess has arranged all sorts of amusing incidents: a mysterious voice on the radio, a menacing face at the window, a mad killer on the loose. Secrets abound in the creepy old mansion. Why does the social secretary carry a hatbox everywhere she goes? Who's the corpse in the wine cellar? Why do little figurines keep toppling from the mantle? Then a real murder takes place, and Miss Maple is outraged. She offers a huge reward to the "detective" who can bring the killer to justice. When the guests aren't busy tripping over clues, they trip over each other! Laughs collide with thrills, and the climax is a real seat-grabber as the true killer is unmasked, and almost everyone turns out to be someone else.

Produced by special arrangement with Baker's Plays
