Perfect Crime

Review by Darren Dalglish
Sep 2001

This thriller is performed at the Duffy Theatre in Times Square. It is a small theatre that seats around 200.

What is appealing about this play is that the same actress Catherine Russell has been playing the same part in the play since it opened 13 years ago, only missing four performances! (BTW: She was also the person I bought my ticket from at the box office and also the usher who took my ticket stubb off me).

This murder mystery concerns Margaret, a psychiatrist, who is accused of murdering her husband by the local Inspector. But he has no proof, particularly as her husband is still alive!!!

This is a clever thriller that will have you guessing all the way to the end. It is full of surprises as each clue is unravelled. It is well acted and performed in a very small stage resulting in a cosy atmosphere. I can highly recommend this!
