February / March 2004
The action of this clever whodunit took place in the dressing-room of a provincial theatre during a performance of a thriller. The star, Addie, was attempting a comeback and was understudied by her best friend Millie. Their constant bickering backstage belied a long history of friendship - which included each one of them having been married to the same charming impresario, Ed Bigg, many years ago. Suspense built when Addie began to feel unwell and, for the first time, Millie had to take her place in the dramatic and violent last act of the play. In a startling twist, the violence becomes real - and Millie was dead. Was it suicide? Was it murder? Who put a real bullet in the gun she was using? With everyone a potential suspect, the tension didn't let up until the final revelation unveiled not only the murderer but the price some actors pay to practice their art.
