A comedy-thriller by F.A. Robinson.
Tonight's play by F.A. Robinson features all the cast of the current successful farce "Dry Rot" now running at the Whitehall Theatre, and is somewhat unusual in form. Its heroes are two scriptwriters who retire to the peace and quiet of Creekwood Castle in order to write a comedy-thriller for television, but for some strange reason their script becomes all a little too real. There are plenty of laughs and enough puzzles and surprises to keep the audience guessing and, "of course, there are bodies as well" but they are not meant to be taken too seriously...
