Accomplice begins as a conventional English thriller set in a country house where a wife and her lover plan to murder her stuffy husband

The husband is subsequently murdered on stage ...

... but then reappears

This is actually a dress rehearsal for an out of town try-out and the murder victim is the playwright and director

He in turn, however, is plotting to murder his wife - the leading lady in his play - so that his affair with her leading man can proceed unimpeded

Then a surprise character comes out of the audience, revealing that something entirely different is actually going on

"A delight. It is humorous, odd, scary, wildly dramatic, adult, adolescent - in short, impossible to dislike" ~ Pasadena Star News

"Miss it a your peril" ~ L.A. Herald Examiner

"A breathless ride through an ever shifting series of planes" ~ Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Part murder-mystery, part sex-farce and completely entertaining ... Suspenseful, charming and funny" ~ USA Today
