A four character thriller. Two east-end chancers, George and Lennie, have kidnapped wealthy heiress Charlotte Chamberlain and taken her to a remote farmhouse. George is confident her father will pay five million to get her back safely. But why did he insist on renting the farmhouse in Lennie's name? Does he plan to double cross Lennie, frame him for the crime and keep all the money himself? Will slow-witted Lennie work out what's going on in time to save himself? Or is the kidnap only a feint to disguise an infinitely more devious scheme? And who is really pulling the strings?
This intriguing new drama will chill and thrill you and keep you guessing until the last nailbiting moment.
‘It is rare indeed top find oneself totally committed to a play and mesmerised from the very first word. Total concentration from start to finish makes this first thriller by Roger Mortimer-Smith all the more remarkable. Add to that moments of sheer comedy, bringing roars of laughter, and you have something truly unique.... guaranteed to hold audiences spellbound’ - The Stage
