..DROWNING MONA


The death of Mona Dearly wasn't so much
a whodunnit, as a who didn't.

Somewhat North of the metropolis of Manhattan lies the quiet little town of Verplanck, New York. Nothing really exciting happens there except perhaps the annual knife-throwing contest. That isn't to say that life in Verplanck is boring. For one thing, the automobile of choice is the Yugo. For another, there seems to be more landscapers than land. But strangest of all, no one in this small town seems to blink when one of its best known and possibly least liked residents, Mona Dearly drives her Yugo into the Hudson to her death.

All in all, Mona's death could be described as a pretty fortuitous accident for everyone whose lives she touched, or in some cases, hit. Except for the fact that it wasn't an accident. Somebody in Verplanck wanted Mona dead.

Will Ferrell plays Cubby, the town's strange funeral home director. He's a bisexual sextrovert with a passion for S & M and budoir photography. Cubby is truly strange character to add to Will's list.
