Ah, Hawaii… land of palm trees, sunny beaches… and MURDER!?!
Big Daddy Sugarbaker has moved to Hawaii after the disastrous failure of his second marriage and a near-fatal heart attack, and is now calling his family together to announce his will. Suddenly - a death! Whodunnit? Howdunnit? And whydunnit? Cast your vote for your favorite dysfunctional character:
Hamilton "Big Daddy" Sugarbaker - family patriarch; made his fortune from products like the Southern Belle Containment Girdle and the Southern Bell Containment Brassiere for Abundant Women.
Bobbie Jo Butler - Big Daddy's nurse and confidante; does she have ulterior motives for making sure Big Daddy stays dependent on her?
Philly Sugarbaker - Big Daddy's drunkard of a sister; disinherited by their parents for her wayward behavior as a teen, she depends on Big Daddy for all her money… but the money would be hers if he were out of the picture.
Rhett Sugarbaker - Big Daddy's older son; smarmy and unethical, he'll do anything, including embezzling from the family business, to make money to cover his huge gambling debts and provide for…
Scarlett Sugarbaker - Rhett's wife; definitely from the wrong side of the tracks, a trampy, trashy social climber who is desperate for money.
Ashley Sugarbaker - Big Daddy's younger son; a struggling (and VERY bad) poet who believes he's a true "artiste", married for just two months to…
Melanie Sugarbaker - Ashley's wife; eccentric "interpretive dancer" who is devoted to Ashley, she insists on living well above their means.
Savannah Sugarbaker - Big Daddy's second wife… or is it ex-wife? Neurotic and irrational former waitress, she insists they're NOT divorced and that she's "just too much woman" for the ailing Big Daddy.
Ms. Beulah Busty, Esq. - Big Daddy's lawyer; aggressive know-it-all who spouts Latin.
Charlotte Russe - true southern belle; runway model for the Southern Belle Containment Brassiere for Abundant Women.
