  • Death Knell

Now published and available from Josef Weinberger Plays!

Genre: Thriller

Author: Cawood, James

The latest thriller from the author of Stone Cold Murder is now available from Josef Weinberger Plays following a successful National UK tour in 2016.

Set in an isolated former hunting lodge in the Scottish Highlands, Death Knell follows Henry Roth, a famous playwright and his wife Evelyn, as they await the arrival of his new ‘muse’ – a charming and charismatic young actor called Jack Willoughby who is determined to secure a role in the playwright’s latest production.

What starts out as a seemingly innocent audition soon leads to an evening full of twists, turns and eventually . . . murder.

Mixing black comedy and shocks of the highest order, Death Knell reinvents the classic thriller genre and will leave audiences breathless and beguiled right up to the final curtain.
