A brilliant and ruthless criminal attorney plots to kill his wife and tests each scenario in the courtroom of this mind. He creates an imaginary prosecutor and he pits himself against this alter ego in a series of witty, sometimes hostile exchanges. Again and again he is frustrated, unable to formulate the ultimate alibi. He is shocked when he learns that his wife and someone else are simultaneously planning to kill him.
"The playwrights have a dandy time manipulating us into believing one thing, then switch on the lights and merrily exclaim, 'Surprise!' ... Wonderful dialogue and satiric jabs at criminal justice." - Miami Sun Sentinel
