The Business of Murder


January 14-15 @ 7 PM

A critical and popular success in London, this psychological thriller about revenge centers on the triangular relationship between Dee, a successful television playwright; Hallet, a detective superintendent; and Stone, a humorless, prissy man. Dee arrives at Stone's flat, having accepted an invitation to discuss a script by Stone's wife. She is rather surprised when Hallett, with whom she is having an affair, also arrives, apparently to investigate a matter concerning Stone's son and his involvement with a drug ring. But where are wife and son? After many twists and turns, Stone's intentions become clear as he slowly reveals the precise nature of the trio's relationship: all three are very much concerned with the business of murder and the play culminates in another perpetration of the crime.

The 3-member cast consists of:

1 female - Dee - (25-35) a television  playwright

1 male - Hallet - (25-40) detective superintendent

1 male - Stone - (40-60)  prissy, humorless man

All cast members should have a British accent.

Mike Nower (director of last year's "Breaking the Code") will direct  "The Business of Murder"
