Play synopsis

On the evening that timid librarian Cinnamon Schmidt and her mother are to entertain her fiance Hobart and his mother at serene family dinner, Cinnamon comes home in shock because she has witnessed a bank robbery and is the only one who can identify the crook.

She confides her terror to chum Deedee Malone, not daring to tell her mother. Then federal agent Joe Shimko arrives having gotten a tip that the robber, Orville Maddox, is en route to bump off the witness.

Joe thinks Deedee is Cinnamon and vice versa, Orville is mistaken for the caterer and for Hobart, mother is confused with the cleaning lady, and poor Cinnamon is thought to be her own mother.

Hobart arrives, posies in hand, just in time to be arrested! But the real star is a monster vacuum cleaner that attacks anyone within range.
