Ashcroft Playhouse


Written by Robin Hawdon. Directed by Louise Jameson.

Bill Crayshaw MP leads a charmed life, hailed in Parliament, lauded in business, and loved at home. That is until he returns from a business trip to find his party agent has been killed in a terrible, tragic accident – or was it?

Mary Stewart isn’t so sure and arrives at his door asking some awkward questions. Is her motive journalism, blackmail, seduction… or revenge?

As the tension mounts and suspense increases, the game of cat and mouse turns into a deadly battle, twisting and turning between truth and lies, to reach a thrilling climax that will keep audiences guessing until the final curtain!
