written by Jeffrey Archer

directed by Kerrie King


Eminent surgeon Dr Patrick Sherwood has been accused of murdering his wife with drugs obtained by his ‘supposed’ mistress. 

This murder thriller from infamous Archer will keep you on your toes throughout with the audience acting as the jury, as if they were in the Central Criminal Court at the Old Bailey. The author has very cleverly written two endings and dependent on the jury’s decision it could go either way.

They will decide….Did Dr Sherwood murder his wife? Was Jennifer Mitchell his mistress? Which of his alibis should you believe? Is the accused a victim or a murderer? Was it a heart attack or a crime of passion? Is the accused a victim or a murderer?
