A Full-length Drama of Mystery and Intrigue

4M / 2W

Approximate Playing Time:  2 hours

A successful painter, Louis Chalk is dead.  He fell from The Window in his artist studio.  It was ruled an accident.  But was it?  Tortured by his death, or perhaps even more by his life, Louis’s much younger wife, Stella, who had been alienated from her husband for some time, grapples with the truth. Stella has come under police suspicion as a murderer; radical emotional vacillations have made her a suspect even in her own eyes. And what agenda does the lawyer, Waters, really have when he shows up offering detailed information about a multitude of old paintings left in a large closet in Chaulk's studio?  And what was the relationship between Louis and Kate, the owner of the art gallery where Chalk had his most conspicuous success? The self-important-ness of the upscale art world colors this dark, almost noir story of love, betrayal, guilt and fear. And ever present is The Window that opens the way out. Not just as a “whodunit” but a “whatwasdun” as well. Note: Play contains adult language and situations.  $20 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
