Peter now firmly on the comeback trail, five years after the death of his wife. He plans to make Iris, to whom he is now engaged, a broadway star in a new play for which Dr Lenz is the financial backer. Things immediately get off to a bad start when the production is unceremoniously dumped into the rundown, rat-infested Dragonet theatre, a venue that hasn’t had a hit in years and which is reputedly haunted. This is almost immediately borne out when old-timer Lionel Comstock initially refuses to even enter the venue. Duluth is able to persuade him onto the stage where, in the time-honoured tradition of the theatrical mysteries, there will be as much drama off the stage as on. The two stars, Mirabelle Rue and Conrad Wessler hate each other’s guts from the get go and both, like Peter, are staging comebacks: Mirabelle after a nervous collapse after the end of her abusive marriage to fellow actor Roland Gates and Wessler, a refugee making his American debut following the Nazi invasion of Austria, who has been recovering from the plane crash that left him physically and psychologically scarred. The reflected face of a woman who strangled herself in the theatre’s main dressing room back in 1902 – who apparently scares Comstock so much that he has a heart attack on stage. A second death, following an apparent accident during the fumigation to get rid of the rats after an attempt to use traps is sabotaged, seems to spell the end of Duluth’s comeback
