Edwina's will leaves her fortune to her impoverished husband and her former companion, even though she knew they were having an affair while she was ill. When the doctor expresses doubt to Scotland Yard about the circumstances of her death, the companion accuses the husband of murdering his wife and attempting to kill her. He insists she did the horrendous deed and is casting the blame on him. This inventive classic melodrama is full of surprises and suspense.
EDWINA BLACK was first presented at the Booth Theatre on November 21, 1950.
