RoCo wishes to thank all those members and friends who have helped to make this production possible.

Once successful playwright Sidney Bruhl, has long suffered a series of box office flops and is struggling to break out of his ongoing rut. One morning he receives a script in the post from Clifford Anderson, a young would-be playwright, seeking his feedback and advice. Asserting that the play is a certain hit, an embittered and envious Sidney reassures his wife Myra that he is only joking, when he frightens her with suggestions that he'd like to kill Clifford in order to steal the script for himself.
For our production, the play was relocated to the UK, with the action taking place in Sidney Bruhl's study, a handsomely converted stable in the Bruhl home on the outskirts of York.
