Edmonton playwright Stewart Lemoine has crafted a dynamite mystery that has 4 great characters, intriguing relationships, comic relief and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.
Who killed Henry Ferrer? Who is Evelyn Strange? What does Wagner's “Siegfried” opera have to do with anything? Lemoine was inspired by Hitchcock's “Vertigo” and has created the 50's film noir look and tension. This will be a fun play to create with challenging parts and great costumes!
