Tampa’s Community Theatre since 1981

No matter who we are individually, together we are Carrollwood Players….

Now on Mainstage

Join us – Friday and Saturday – 8pm and Sunday 3pm

Directed by Victor Carr | Produced by Rae Schwartz
Written by Bernard Slade

This masterful suspense tale by the author of Same Time, Next Year, Same Time, Another Year, Romantic Comedy and Tribute involves a successful mystery writer whose latest work has strangely turned into a romance a vivid and adulterous romance. His son, his second wife and his editor marvel at the truthfulness of the work, remarkable since it is inconceivable that he could ever have had such an affair. Enter a woman, who is intent on blackmail and whose story is foolproof and airtight: it appears that Arthur has been trysting away from home. Death stalks: the other woman disappears and evidence incriminates Arthur in her murder. There is a conspiracy to do Arthur in, a conspiracy that entails cunning, deceit and ingenious plotting.
