1st Reh September 22
October 7
Close November 1

Broadway’s longest running two person, cat and mouse thriller.

Andrew Wyke is ''…a strongly built, tall, fleshy man of 57, gone slightly to seed. His fair hair carries on it the suspicion that chemical aid has been involved to keep the grey at bay. His face, sourly amused and shadowed with evaded self-knowledge, is beginning to reflect the absence of constant, arduous employment.'' Andrew is an immensely successful mystery writer. His home reflects his obsession with the inventions and deceptions of fiction and his fascination with games and game-playing. He lures his wife’s lover, Milo Tindle, to the house and convinces him to stage a robbery of her jewelry, a proposal that sets off a chain of events that leaves the audience trying to decipher reality.

Milo Tindle is ''…about 35, slim, dark-haired, and of medium height. He has a sharp, sallow face alive with a slightly Mediterranean wariness. Everything about him is neat from his exactly parted hair to the squared off white handkerchief in the breast pocket of his blue mohair suit.'' Milo has to also convincingly disguise his voice and mannerisms in order to play characters Inspector Doppler, Police Constable Higgs, and Detective Sergeant Tarrant. He comes into Andrew Wyke’s life because he is having an affair with Wyke’s wife, Marguerite. Milo, who is younger than Wyke, is ensconced in the romance of his affair.
