From West End

Two once successful crime writing playwrights are writing a block bluster to pay off their mounting debts, or are they fulfilling their full potential by plotting the perfect murder? The nagging wife is the ideal victim, especially as she is heavily insured. It all seems plausible until their secretary is mistakenly killed and a stagestruck detective appears on the scene.
"It is a glorious spoof, a send up of almost every mystery thriller written for the stage with some wickedly witty lines." - Maidenhead Advertiser
A Sting in the Tale was first presented at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre on May  11, 1982. It was directed by Val May.
