Synopsis

The audience has assembled for 'Murder by Moonlight' but the real dramas are happening amongst them, not on the stage. In the audience are families, lovers and old friends. A look at the complicated and sometimes humorous ties that that hold relationships together - or apart - for years. This is a one-act play in an unusual setting and very simply staged, requiring only chairs.
