SHOW SYNOPSIS

Tony Wendice plans to have his wife, Margot, murdered for her money. He blackmails an assassin to strangle her for a thousand pounds. Instead the assassin is killed and she survives. Wendice then tries to have his wife convicted for murder, but Scotland Yard and Max who is in love with Margot learn the truth and foil the plan.


SHOW TYPE

The performances will take place in-person onstage.


CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS


Tony: Male, 30s and 40s. British. A former tennis player, a gentleman who is never shaken or perturbed. Very good at thinking on his feet, he is cold and calculating, while giving off the demeanor of warmth and friendliness.


Margot: Female, 25-40. British. She is fun-loving and optimistic, to her detriment.

She is caring and trusting and believes people a little too readily. Born to money and married to Tony, she had an affair with Max in the past. She believes that all is well with her marriage now, however, and does not give up on that illusion lightly. Fight choreography required.


Max: Male, 25-late 30s. American. A television crime writer, he had an affair with Margot and still loves her. A genuine good guy. He has a real sense of playfulness and innocence about him, but he is not shy about fighting for what he thinks is right.


Hubbard: Male, 35+. British. The chief inspector, Hubbard is able to tell not everything is as it seems with the case. He is calm and professional, a British gentleman.


Lesgate: Male. 30s and 40s. British. A former classmate of Tony’s at Cambridge. He has gone from educated student to petty criminal, mostly focusing in conning older women out of their money. Nervous and jittery, unsuccessfully attempts to be suave.


Thompson: Male. Any age. British. A police constable working with Hubbard.
