Murder Weapon (theatre)

The first of the four plays in the Devonshire Park Theatre's Murder In The Park Season is to be a World Premiere! Murder Weapon by Brian Clemens is described as an 'ingeniously plotted, highly tense thriller'. It is being produced by talking Scarlet. As yet, the only cast members I can confirm are Patric Kearns and Marcus Hutton (who was very good in Playing Dead last year and was also in Rope). I'll update this post if/when I get more information.

Screenwriter and television producer, Brian Clemens is best known for The Avengers television series in the 1960s but if you glance through the list of his work on his IMDb page, you'll probably spot loads more mystery and thriller series and films of his that you've enjoyed. He was given an OBE in 2010 for services to British television and film.

When Chief Constable Bligh accompanies her friend Diane Tulliver home to Dysart Hall after a night at the opera they arrive to a horrifying scene. Diane’s husband Paul has been shot dead and ex-convict Charley Mirren is standing over him bearing a gun. It appears to be an open-and-shut case for Jessica Bligh, but as she and her colleague Inspector Fremont probe further they discover all is not what it seems.
