“Exciting, good plot and surprisingly entertaining in spite of the morbid story.”
“The classic ‘did he?’ or ‘didn’t he?’ build up with a good twist at the end.”
Accused of the wilful murder of his terminally ill wife, Sir David Metcalf finds himself locked in legal combat with his old rival, Anthony Blair-Booth QC. After a tense and gripping courtroom scene, Act I ends just as we are about to hear the jury’s verdict. Act II takes us back in time to the fateful night of Lady Metcalfe’s death and ends with a surprising twist.

“A hilarious and wild romp through the perils of community theatre!”
This is the story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax and a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.
Just like real theatre, if anything goes wrong, the cast will just have to deal with it. The audience might not know if it’s a genuine mistake, or just part of the show.
