(Stage Fright in case you didn’t know)
In association with Samuel French Limited
A Thriller by Bettine Manktelow
The action of this clever whodunnit takes place in the dressing room of a provincial theatre during a performance of a thriller. The star of the show, Addie, is attempting a comeback, and is understudied by her best friend, Millie.
Their constant bickering backstage belies a long history of friendship – which includes each of them having been married to the same charming impresario, Ed Gibb, many years ago.
Suspense builds when Addie begins to feel unwell and, for the first time, Millie must take her place in the dramatic and violent last act of the play. In a startling twist, the violence becomes real – and Millie is dead.
Was it suicide?
Was it murder?
Who put a real bullet in the gun she was using?
With everyone a potential suspect, the tension doesn’t let up until the final revelation unveils not only the murderer but the price some actors pay to practise their art.
