Are You Sure? is a case of shifting realities. How much is happening, how much isn't? Does David want to kill Caroline? Does Charlie want to kill David? Does Caroline want to kill everyone? The play mixes comedy with high suspense as the audience tries to figure out what to believe and who to believe. One thing is for sure, someone did it.
