All seems well at the Caplan's publishing house until a can of worms is unceremoniously ripped open at a dinner party. A chance remark plunges the guests into a re-examination of the mysterious events surrounding the recent death of Martin Caplan and skeletons come crashing out of the closet in more ways than one.

The cast includes Michael Praed best known for starring in Robin of Sherwood and Dynasty, Colin Buchanan from the hit BBC television series Dalziel and Pascoe and Matt Milne fresh from playing footman Alfred Nugent in Downton Abbey. The classic play will be in town from 27 October - 1 November.
