Dead Guilty written by Richard Harris.
This is a tense, psychological study of guilt and obsession with a cast of four – three female and one male.
The play concerns a young graphic artist whose leg has been badly injured in a car crash, which happened when a business associate suffered a fatal heart attack at the wheel.
Housebound and depressed, Julia is tormented when things disappear, a Mexican orange blossom materialises on her shambling Victorian terrace and someone prowls upstairs at night. While a kindly counsellor contends with Julia’s suicidal tendencies and a besotted handyman helps around the house, an excessively solicitous widow invades Julia’s life. Suspense builds as the question becomes whether the affair Julia was enjoying with her now dead colleague will cost her her own life.
