This exciting mystery contains two murders with ever mounting excitement and explores the fascinating psychological overtones and undertones that impel the murder to the crime. Atop one of the fashionable Hollywood Hills, Clair Clarendon, top gossip columnist, reigns supreme over her helpless targets. Their lives and loves are ruled by her pen and it is not surprising that all of them could wish her dead. Ideal for college and little theatre groups, and recommended for advanced high school drama clubs as it provides superb acting assignments for the whole cast, plus a challenging directing job. Audiences attending this play's premiere performances at the Dorset Playhouse, Vermont, were loud and long in their applause.
The Pen Is Deadlier was first presented at the Dorset Playhouse in Dorset, Vermont on August 7, 1958. It was directed by Jeanne P. Mackenthun.
