Something to Hide

A thriller by Leslie Sands
26th, 27th and 28th May 1983
Faringdon Community Theatre
Produced by Deirdre Hamley

This most ingenious thriller concerns an author who finds that his wife (who is also his publisher) has run over his mistress in a car and killed her. They agree to dispose of the body and the rest of the play reveals the true relationship between husband and wife and how they have double-crossed each other at every turn. The true fate of the mistress is discovered in a surprise denouement, whilst the net around the couple is being very neatly tightened by a most convincing and refreshingly new type of detective.

The action of the play passes in the sitting-room of the Halts’ country cottage in Essex. The time is the present.
