Synopsis: Former British tennis pro Tony Wendice discovers that his wealthy wife Margot is having an affair with American TV mystery writer Mark Halliday. Worried that she and her money might leave him, he comes up with the perfect plan to kill her so he can get his hands on her inheritance. He blackmails Captain Lesgate, an old acquaintance, into carrying out the murder, but the carefully orchestrated plan goes awry, and Margot stays alive. Now Wendice must frantically scheme to outwit the police by framing his wife for murder and avoid having his plot detected.
All roles are available:
Tony Wendice (Male, 30s-40s) – Athletic and handsome (former professional tennis player), but selfish and arrogant; embodiment of calm, cool, and collected; sociopathic tendencies. Subtly manipulative, as well as likable, able to misdirect individuals to suit his own purposes.
Margo Wendice (Female, 30s-40s) – Charming, naïve, and wealthy wife of Tony; quick-witted and intelligent, but trusting; conflicted by her extra-marital affair. Totally unaware that her husband is planning to kill her and then frame her when his plan goes awry.
Mark Halliday (Male, 30s-40s) – American; easy going and handsome; straight-forward; quick, inventive mind of a mystery writer. In love with Margo, but respects her decision to end the affair.
Captain Lesgate (Male, 30s-40s) – Crook and con man; makes a living preying on wealthy heiresses; willing to murder a woman he doesn’t know for money. Possesses a certain level of shrewdness, but no match for the calculating Tony. Meets his demise early in the play, and then actor may be used in cameo-type roles (e.g., a constable).
Inspector Hubbard (Male, 40s-60s) – A bit eccentric, but thoughtful and thorough; shows glimpses of his good-natured character. Classic British detective who is much sharper than he first appears, but may also be played as more of a bumbler who is much sharper than he acts.
