Who killed Jane “The Bitch” Nelson while dozens of celebrities sipped champagne? It’s a sleazy mystery indeed, implicating many of the city’s movers and shakers, and it’s a gold mine for any newspaper covering it. Baxter, owner of the biggest paper in town, wants an answer to that question and he tags T.M. Power for the job. “I’m a political journalist” Power protests, “Not a gossip columnist!” But his boss prevails, and our hero suddenly finds himself in the underbelly of big city corruption, knee-deep in lawyers, actors, and hookers, all scheming and conniving in a comedic web that leads to one of the biggest stories Power has ever covered. In Gossip, George F. Walker skewers our appetite for celebrity and fame with this film noir-inspired puzzle of a play.
