Awards & Nominations
The PlayA man schemes to murder his wealthy wife for the love of another woman the sister, an actress friend or the au pair? Victim and victimized become intertwined in this startling drama.
ReviewsWith so many extravagant thrillers on television and at the cinema, it is refreshing to see the same tension created on a small stage by amateurs.
Suddenly at Home, by Francis Durbridge, has an intriguing plot to work with, and the Manifest Theatre Group dealt with it splendidly.
Under the experienced guidance of producer/director Dennis Murfitt, they had the full house in "Robins Shed", Manningtree, nervous with fright, laughing, sighing with relief, and wondering just how the plot could possibly get any thicker. It certainly twisted and turned throughout the two-hour performance.
Valerie Taylor, playing the high-minded victim, made the audience wince a couple of times with her "modern" language -
essential to the character - but she enjoyed every minute. There were also fine performances from Janet Green
and Ed King as the scheming lovers.
