"The twists and turns the script takes, as well as the nasty self-centred characters, reminded me of the Tony Award-winning play Sleuth"
- Barbara Popel, Apt613.ca
A dark thriller/comedy by John Muggleton
Run time: 100 min with intermission
4 characters (2 M, 2 F)
Grace, a wealthy and mysterious woman, invites Chuck, an ex golf pro turned financial advisor and Tony, a lawyer with sordid secrets, to her country home to discuss her estate and update her will. Once there they both realize Grace has more on her mind than business. The two men are thrust into a game of survival, that, if lost, will destroy their lives. A play with enough twists and turns to keep any audience on the edge of their seat.
