Eloise Vanlandingham is running for Congress and a small gathering for potential donors is planned by Nigel, her less-than-scrupulous campaign manager, and her husband Ralph. Just before the first guests arrive Harold, Ralph’s college roommate, shows up at the front door with a problem: he’s driving around town with a dead body in his van and he doesn’t know what to do with it. The body arrives in the house just as the first guests arrive. What can they do? They dress the body up like a guest and call him Jimmy.
“No Body Like Jimmy” is a fast-paced farce about politics and about a dead body being the life of the party
