If you read my post on the 5th of May about Murder Weapon, you might already be anticipating the Murder in The Park season of plays coming to the Devonshire Park Theatre throughout June. Suddenly At Home will be performed during the second week - from the 11th to the 15th.
Written by Francis Durbridge in 1973, Suddenly At Home is set in the 1970s and is staged in a single room of a flat. Durbridge also wrote the popular Paul Temple radio series which expanded into novels and films. Suddenly At Home is the first of his eight plays. This talking Scarlet production will star Marcus Hutton and Ben Roddy, both of last year's Playing Dead and Rope, and Patric Kearns.
When Glenn Howard decided to get rid of his wealthy wife - firstly to enjoy her money, secondly to avoid spending the rest of his life in Bermuda, and thirdly to free himself for another woman - he worked out a complicated but seemingly foolproof plan which would not only keep him in the clear but involve his wife’s former lover, detective-story writer Sam Blaine.
But, the plan depends on the co-operation of another person, Sheila Wallis, an attractive woman to whom Glenn is apparently devoted. All appears to be going well for Glenn until the unexpected arrival of the formidable Remick.
