The stage is set…

June 05, 2015

My Wave painting is taking central stage in a masterful suspense thriller set in a luxury apartment by the Sussex coast. A play within a play with head-spinning twists and turns to the very last shocking moment. It’s also quite funny…!

Murder by Misadventure, By Edward Taylor
Friday 29 May to Saturday 6 June at 7.30pm


A Stables Theatre production directed by Carol Hunt
