About the Event
The premiere of PADOS's new production is presented as a special performance as part of Prestwich Arts Festival main weekend.
In London, 1952, the wealthy Margot Wendice has convinced her professional tennis player husband, Tony, to give up playing to spend more time with her. To Margot, their life together is a happy one. However, he has discovered that several years ago, Margot had an affair with an American murder mystery writer named Max Halliday. Because he wants revenge as well as her money, Tony meticulously plans Margot’s murder. Tony blackmails a man who calls himself Captain Lesgate, a former schoolmate and convicted criminal, to carry out the scheme. They plan what they believe is the perfect murder. But when Margot refuses to play the part of the victim, things go much differently than planned.
