This masterfully plotted show has so many twists and turns that we're going to tell you only the bare minimum of the story so you can enjoy the surprises when you read the script. On the surface, it's a "love triangle" tale: State's witness Evan Jorris, under a government protection program after testifying against the mob, has a wife, Francine, who along with her lover, lawyer Larry Craig contrives to do away with her husband, confident that Evan's protector, federal agent Bert Marshak, will assume logically, that the mob did the deed, and never suspect the two of them. This deceptively simple setup, however, is not at all what it seems. By the end of the first act, you may smugly think you can second guess the play's outcome but in the second and final act, you'll ruefully discover that you not only don't know what's what you don't even know who's who! The author of that super stunner THE PERFECT MURDER has so many shocks and surprises up his insidious sleeve that you'll be downright popeyed as they explode into life, in this show that's a surefire way to dazzle and delight your audience. We'll say no more. Just get this show, quick! You and your audiences are in for the time of your lives!
