Dress by Ganni.
Bra by Coco de Mer.
Knife by Stanley.

A gripping, at times hilarious revenge tale about an actress in her 40’s under investigation for the murder of an auteur theatre director.

Set against the backdrop of a stage production of Hitchcock’s Psycho, Emily Bruni (Peep Show) plunges us into the dark heart of show business.

Nominated for two Off West End Theatre Awards.
