Case of the Missing Time

MYSTERY/FARCE. Big Tex is extremely enamored with his Fanny—his wife, that is. So when his Fanny’s jewels and artwork go missing, Big Tex hires the great-niece of Sherlock Holmes and the great-granddaughter of Dr. Watson to solve the mystery. Holmes’ straight-talking housekeeper, Mrs. Hudson, goes undercover to collect clues from Big Tex’s monstrous children, sneering butler, timid French maid, and Gestapo-like TV-star nanny. Meanwhile, Holmes and Watson mingle with Big Tex’s guests, who include a melodramatic has-been actress and star of “Luna Craft Pygmy Queen,” a hard-of-hearing elderly neighbor who tends to turn up disrobed from time to time, and a mysterious magician from the Far East. Holmes and Watson have until the end of the weekend to solve the case so that Big Tex’s Fanny can once again glitter with jewels!
