Successful playwrights, Maxine and Nigella, are struggling for inspiration, and their financial resources are rapidly dwindling. Desperately searching for a new idea for their next play they decide to imagine a victim first and then fit the mystery plot around the dead body.
“We need a victim the audience would cheerfully hate,” says Nigel just before his wife Ann, walks into the playwrights’ studio.

A Sting in the Tale is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD, a Concord Theatricals Company
