A retired tennis pro plots the murder of his own wife—but when she turns the tables on her attempted assailant, she is convicted of murder. Can the police detective who brought her to trial now decipher the clues that will save her life? The play that inspired Hitchcock’s suspense classic weaves an ever tightening web of danger and deception.
Tony Windice - (40s - 50s Lead)
A former tennis player. Tony is currently planning an elaborate plan to have his wife murdered. He is a true gentleman and is NEVER shaken or perturbed. Very good at thinking on his feet, he is cold and calculating, while giving off the demeanor of warmth and friendliness.
Margot Windice - (40s Lead)
She is fun-loving and optimistic, to her detriment. She is caring and trusting and believes people a little too readily. Born to money and married to Tony, she has also had an affair with Max in the past. She believesthat all is well with her marriage now, however, and does not give up on that illusion lightly. Fight choreography required.
Max Halliday - (40s - 50s Lead)
An crime writer for television, he has had an affair with Margot in the past and still truly loves her. A genuine good guy. He has a real sense of playfulness and innocence about him, but he is not shy about fighting for what he thinks is right.
Captain Lesgate - (40s - 50s Supporting)
A former classmate of Tony’s at Cambridge. He has gone from educated student to petty criminal, mostly focusing in conning older women out of their money. While he believes he is a good criminal, he is easily able to be blackmailed. Nervous and jittery, unsuccessfully attempts to be suave and debonair. Fight choreography required.
Inspector Hubbard - (40s - 50s Supporting)
The Chief Inspector, Hubbard is immediately able to tell that not everything is as it seems with the case. He is calm and professional, a true gentleman. Plays his cards close to his chest, always has more ideas then he lets on.
Thompson - (younger but any age --Supporting)
A police constable working with Hubbard. Will double as offstage voices and other parts.
