The Play

This short, powerful, humorous and somewhat gruesome play based on an infamous murder, supposedly committed by one of Brisbane's wealthiest citizens, was a highlight of the Queensland Law Society's bus tour crime sites in the Brisbane area in May 2003.

The story is told very effectively, using the device of a modern day reporter (Katy), "interviewing" eye witnesses from the period. These witnesses prove to be very unreliable, contradicting themselves and each other, which serves to highlight the rumours and innuendo from which the "mystery" arose.

The Cast

Aleathea Monsour, David Jones, Glynn Liddy, Paul Liddy and Katy Forde.
