'Anatomy of a Murder''by Elihu Winer

'Anatomy of a Murder''by Elihu Winer

Anatomy of a Murder is a classic courtroom drama set in the US state of Michigan, based on the book and real life experiences of Robert Traver (which was a pseudonym for John Voelker, a former Judge of the Michigan Supreme Court.) Anatomy is a fierce and uncompromising look at the American legal system.

Defeated for re-election as District Attorney, Paul Biegler isn't looking forward to becoming a defence attorney, but his first case is sensational. Lieutenant Manion is accused of murdering the bartender who allegedly raped his wife, Laura. It’s a high-stakes battle of wit and determination, as Biegler uses every device to save the officer's neck.

"Deathtrap" by Ira Levin

Sidney Bruhl hasn’t written a hit play for 18 years when he receives a script from a former student, Clifford Anderson, that’s a guaranteed success. His wife, Myra, suggests the two men could collaborate; Sidney jokes that it’d be just as easy to murder the young man and steal the script for his own. When Clifford arrives later that evening, no one–not even the visiting psychic–could predict where the dark events of the night will go. Who is innocent? Who only seems that way?

"The Importance Of Being Earnest" By Oscar Wilde

The Importance of Being Earnest is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies. It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. The elaborate plot ridicules Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved, and indeed bizarre, characters to be found on the modern stage.
