Synopsis

This gem of a murder mystery has been constructed with consummate playwriting skill. With more twists than a mountain road, your audience will gasp as each new turn is revealed. As the play starts, Jack and his girlfriend Christine plot to kill Marie, Jack's wife. Then we find that Christine has informed Marie of the plot and they are working together to do in the unsuspecting Jack. However, Jack is working on another scheme—and so is Marie! Just as you think you've got it all worked out, there's an even more astonishing switch.

Customer Reviews

"I enjoyed producing this play very much. It was well written and a big hit. It was worth my while to produce it."
Review by Clyde Berry, Maury High School, Norfolk, VA
"A very well received play. Our troupe really played up and maximized all comedic moments. We added music and sound effects to assist with the humour. It was very over-the-top soap operaesque. The crowd loved it."
Review by Kelly Boegel, Gateway Theatre Guild, North Bay, Ontario, Canada
