Set in 1950s London. Tony Wendice concocts a plot to murder his wealthy wife Margot. When the scheme goes awry, he devises a sinister backup plan to get her out of the picture for good.
A cat-and-mouse waiting game made famous by Alfred Hitchcock’s hit film, Knott’s classic tale continues to be one of the most popular thrillers for stage and screen.
“…Original and remarkably good theatre – quiet in style but tingling with excitement underneath.” – The New York Times
