Abstract:

Frank Parrish, a rather superstitious college professor from Boston, Massachusetts, visits New Orleans because his father, who deserted him when he was two, has died and left him a restaurant. The employees of the restaurant would like Frank to sell the restaurant to them, but Pokey, the owner of a rival restaurant, would like Frank to sell the restaurant to him for a much higher sum. Frank is tempted by the higher sum, but Miss Marie visits Madame Torchay and puts a voodoo "chain" on Frank so that he will sell the restaurant to the employees and stay in New Orleans. In the course of the show, Frank meets and falls in love with Hannah Griffin, female embalmer and daughter of Mrs. Bertha Griffin-Lamour, funeral home owner and very influential lady.
