Murderer: A Play in Two Acts
So full of hoaxes and double crossing you can hardly believe your eyes.
"The plot leaves you breathless by the audacity of its hair-raising twists and turns". -- Milton Shulman, Evening Standard
"Diabolically ingenious". -- John Barber, Daily Telegraph
Opening with one of the most truly horrifying scenes ever devised for the stage, Shaffer's play unfolds upon an incredulous and mesmerized audience.

But where does such a fascination end and the compulsion to kill begin?Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
