Arthur Jamison, an arrogant and ruthless trial lawyer, has had countless affairs. He has decided to get out of his marriage by bumping off his wife, Louise.
Metro Theatre is pleased to bring the fantasy murder GUILTY CONSCIENCE written by Richard Levinson and William Link (the creators of Columbo TV mysteries) to our stage March 4 to 25.
Louise unwittingly put her life in danger when she contested the prenuptial agreement she signed before marrying the now famous criminal attorney. Armed with information on how her cheating husband conducts his business and personal affairs, she demands more money from him.
To stave off hefty alimony payments, and with the help of mistress Jackie, Arthur plans how best to pull off the dirty deed. Conjuring up an imaginary alter ego, Arthur cerebrally stages several murder scenarios and tests each in the courtroom of his mind. He pits himself against his imaginary prosecutor in a series of witty, sometimes hostile exchanges. Again and again he is frustrated, unable to formulate the ultimate alibi. Will Arthur have the final word?
Are we seeing Arthur’s murderous plans acted out in the theatre of his mind, or are we seeing events as they unfold in reality? Director Don Briard sums up the action in this play with an old saying:
“There’s many a slip twixt the cup and the lip”.
GUILTY CONSCIENCE stars Francis Boyle as Arthur Jamison, Sheila Keating as Louise Jamison, Joseph Balint as the Prosecutor and Kaylah Zander as Jackie Willis. The show is directed by Don Briard, the production manager is Rita Price, with Heather Webster as stage manager and Chrysta Webster as ASM.
