The Plot

Bere Knighton is the location for the play, where Dr. Richard Forth has a hectic work schedule.  He also has an awkward friendship with his ex-girlfriend, and his wife, Barbara, is constantly ill.  Richard has run every test he can think of and is now starting to believe her symptoms are purely psychological.

When Eric Dawson, a stranger, claims to have known Richard’s second fiancee – a woman Richard claims does not exist – Barbara’s health worsens and she isn’t the only one.  With bad luck spreading almost as quickly as bad news, it seems somebody is out to kill Barbara and anyone else who gets in their way.

This thriller is sure to keep you guessing until the inevitable, yet unpredictable, final twist at the end
