Tragedy has struck in the normally quiet world of Littledean Theatre. During a performance of the thriller 'The Final Curtain' , Vincent Royle, the leading actor, has collapsed to the floor, dead. Amidst the screams and gasps from the audience and cast members the curtain comes down and the investigations begin. It seems that Vincent's death is not by natural causes and Scotland Yard believes it is murder!
However, in true theatrical style, the show must go on. Vincent's understudy plays his role the next night and afterwards all the company are called together by the theatre manager, Jay Fitzharing. All the people who work at the theatre will be there to celebrate Vincent's life and also to answer questions posed by Inspector Blewitt of the Yard who will be joining them later on.
Everyone taking part is given a character. As well as having a murder to investigate, characters also have their own, secret objectives.
