 .

People of the past appear in various forms in this two-act mystery-comedy set on Logan Street in the heart of Charleston, South Carolina’s renowned Historic District.  Indomitable Charleston matron Charlotte Butler raises thousands of flowers to the hum of classical music, cultivates birds, plays championship bridge, ballroom dances, sometimes cleans her own house, and spars with both her parrot, Jacob, and flighty neighbor Virginia (Gin) Middleton.  Gin's latest flame is the distinguished former New Hampshire Senator Mark Smyth, now an Archdale Street resident.  The Senator appears to have a curious interest in Charlotte.  When Gin has to cancel one of her dates with Mark because of an emergency in Savannah, he slips in and visits Charlotte.  The visit proves to be more than one of mere curiosity as we discover what these two-unique people have in common.  Charlotte makes Mark accompany her to St. Phillip’s Cemetery at night where they encounter someone common to both their pasts, someone Charlotte does not want to see.
