Last Word Tales
The Master's House is a clearinghouse for the departed. Senator Michael "Magazine" Gladstone, Diane White-Shough (Diane Nightingale) and Richard LaPaz (Rio Richelieu) arrive together. They don't know that they are dead. Although the Master isn't home, the butler, Hawthorne, gladly receives them. As Hawthorne tries to inform them of their current state, one by one they leave the house. Through episodes in their former lives, they relive the events that caused their deaths.
Rio Richelieu is a drive-in movie projectionist. During the course of his career, he eventually owns the drive-in, which, ultimately over the years, stresses him to death. Diane Nightingale is a call girl on Philadelphia's Mainline. She is a young woman whose career is not in itself the cause of her death, but, she dies at the hands of a dangerously obsessed young man. In World War II, Michael Gladstone is a commander of a transport outfit. At wars' end he settles down to a comfortable life as a senator, whose major accomplishment is the creation of a new road. It is on that road that he meets his end.
The lives of these three characters are connected. Will they find the courage to either utter or write their last words?
