Who Shot the Pianist?

By Bill Gavin

Item details

A murder is committed in full view of all -- but who is its perpetrator? And is the dead man the intended victim? These are but two of the posers facing Det.-Insp. Jean Gray when she inadvertently walks in on the local drama group where the thriller being rehearsed turns into real-life crime.

As well as the understandable loyalties of love, her probing bares under-currents of prejudice, ambition, blackmail and a possible settling of old scores and in the final scene tension increases as the possibility of guilt shifts swiftly from one character to another. Simply-set in a village hall, the play's very believable characters range from quite young to verge-of-retirement, with much of the comedy coming from a `thrawn auld de'il of a hall caretaker at loggerheads with almost everyone.
