Deadly Nightcap


Francis Durbridge

Directed by: Babs Frith

20th - 24th March 1990

Murder and mystery abound in this ingenious play with more than its fair share of blind alleys. A greedy husband plots to kill his wife and make it look like suicide. His plans are thwarted: he, not his wife, ends up dead. But how and by whom?
