CAT'S CRADLE

by Leslie Sands

Director:  Jim Grey

Jonathan Lewis as Bob Marriott, a newspaper reporter
Richard Wood as Inspector Frost
Inspector Frost retires in a month. He returns to Waverton Manor where, eighteen years before, he failed to solve a kidnap and possible murder.
With a new piece of evidence he re-opens the case which almost ruined him.
This time he finds that the villagers are no longer interested in re-living the past. It becomes increasingly apparent that he is facing a conspiracy of silence and hostility.
But the burden of truth is finally resolved in a series of startling revelations, much to the Inspector's horror and the surprise of the audience.
