REQUIEM FOR MURDER – PLAY ABOUT COMMITTING MURDER

It takes one hell of a plan to orchestrate murder. To play all sides and think of the minute details that would have you avoid suspicion. To be a killer whether you actually pull the trigger or not. Ollie would know. He’s done his fair share of scheming without getting his hands dirty. Now for the coup de grâce that would end his suffering: doing away with mother. If you ask him, she had it coming in this play about committing murder. Same can’t be said for Alex though or even the people who seem to die (inside as well) just from encountering Oliver Brooks. Perhaps he never really recovered from Rupert’s death. That would explain the downward spiral that has him at the mercy of the step-brother he never knew existed all his life. In Requiem for Murder, a drama in two acts, death is only the beginning.

If you’ve died before…you can die again.
