Synopsis

The mysterious and wealthy Grace has invited a former golf pro turned financial advisor and a lawyer with sordid secrets to her mansion where her dying wish forces the two men to unexpected extremes. From the writer of Burn comes this dark comedy/thriller that won Best Production, the People’s Choice Award, and Outstanding Achievement in Playwriting at the 2019 EODL Festival.


​​"Ottawa actor, producer and playwright John Muggleton (Burn 2022) has created a smartly written suspense that opens with a prologue that does a solid job of capturing the audience’s attention. Grace’s backstory is reminiscent of a gruesome crime that ended the lives of a Toronto couple almost a decade ago, but this is a work of fiction that takes twists and turns the audience does not predict without any of the horror."
