AUDITION NOTICE

THE SOUND OF MURDER
By WILLIAM FAIRCHILD
Directed by PETER NEAVES

THE PLAY
A writer of children’s stories is popular in his field, but not at home, where he is a calculating sadist. His wife turns to another man for affection, and eventually the two of them devise a fool-proof plan to do away with the husband. Can the pair get away with what they consider to be the “perfect murder”, or will others conspire to ruin their fool-proof plan?
