Ann's college friend, fellow actress Sandy Stafford, has just landed her first starring role on Broadway, and Ann is letting Sandy stay with her while she's in New York. Although Ann says that she is happy for Sandy, she doesn't want to admit that there is a pang of jealousy thrown in as well. Ann has mixed feelings about Sandy's eventual request for her to be her understudy: she's excited at the prospect of being on Broadway in a starring role, but she's also too excited at the prospect of being on Broadway in a starring role which means that she secretly wishes something bad would happen to Sandy. Ann and Sandy vow to each other that they will avoid the pitfalls associated with the rivalry between star and understudy. But almost as soon as Ann officially gets the understudy position, that rivalry rears its ugly head. In addition, one bad thing after another seems to be happening to Sandy. Is Ann's subconscious trying to sabotage Sandy? Regardless, can their friendship withstand ... Written by Huggo
