The play begins in the 1960s when young Carla Le Marchant, recently returned from Canada, sets out to discover the mystery of her mother’s conviction for the murder of her father. Against all odds, Carla firmly believes her mother was innocent of the crime and sets out to prove it. As the crime itself took place in the 1940s can people’s memories be relied upon?
With an all-star cast including names such as Liza Goddard, Sophie Ward and Gary Mavers, and good stage sets this is a really entertaining evening. If I have any criticisms then they would be Carla Le Marchant’s dodgy Canadian accent which seemed to sway from American to Scottish within a sentence, and the extremely bright flashlights used to denote flashbacks in time – definitely not helpful to anyone prone to headaches!
