About the Play
Stacey Harrison is a charming, sophisticated and highly successful businesswoman. However, she does seem to get herself involved in complicated and indeed mysterious circumstances. To start with, she is seeking a divorce from her husband for somewhat unclear reasons. Shortly after her return from a slightly questionable trip abroad she is attacked by a strange man and, in the struggle, kills him.
It soon transpires that the man may not be so much of a stranger as it first appeared. Stacey then temporarily disappears. A second killing and an attempt at a third occur before the mysteries are finally resolved. The tension and mystery rises sharply throughout and is sustained to the final moments.
