The Kemper Center in Kenosha, Wisconsin was the location of several strange deaths, especially of nuns. In 1900, Sister Augusta was found dead, face-down in Lake Michigan, right off the shore of Kemper. It was ruled a suicide at the time -- but who kills themselves by lying face-down in a lake waiting to suffocate? And just who is this young woman who needs to talk to Orson Welles -- a.k.a., the KANE SHADOW -- about new information that she discovered about Sister Augusta? But alas! Orson is stuck in Chicago recording commercials! How will Orson investigate these mysteries? Not to worry! It's his trusty secretary, JEANNETTE, to the rescue!
One day, Racine resident Barbara Tylla was looking through her mother’s old cedar chest and happened upon a packet of old letters. In these letters, Barb found her family’s story of strong women, loving men, and life in the 1930s and early 1940s in northern Wisconsin. She took the letters and wrote a play where despite the challenges of the Great Depression and the early days of World War II, love conquers all. Barb, though, goes beyond just telling a story of her family and tells us how this is a story of all of our families in this charming play.
