Detective Murdoch faces an unusual case when the desiccated body of a man falls through the ceiling of the Grand Theater and onto the stage during a performance of Macbeth. Using dental records, the body is identified as that of Virgil Smart, the former owner of the theater who had died a year ago. Problem is, Smart is supposed to be buried and when they re-open his grave, they find the body of an unknown man. Murdoch suggests that Dr. Ogden attempt a facial reconstruction to identify the body. When Murdoch and Crabtree find a hidden room off Smart's office, a love nest, they believe they've found the site of his murder. Written by garykmcd

Inspector Thomas Brackenreid: [Sarcastically] Audience lapped it up. Ignorant sods thought it was part of the play.
