When China's teenage son finds some skeletal remains during a cave dig--remains that show a not so accidental death--it is a distrubing developement. But China does not let it distract her from the opening of the new community theater donated by the elderly Obdermann sisters.  Unfortunaly, the haughty, bullying, Jane Obermann- and her frai, frightened younger sister- made the donation with a condition. : that the first production be a play written by Jane about her aristocratic family history.
