STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
by Craig Warner

Directed by Horrie Leek

 Mysterious playboy Charles Bruno and architect Guy Haines are complete strangers who just happen to meet in the dining car of a train. Because they are strangers, Charles remarks that "they can say anything they like" to one another. So much so, that he proposes the perfect murder. He will kill Guy’s unfaithful wife, and in return, Guy will kill Charles’ much hated father. When they part, Guy never imagines that he will ever see Charles again or that Charles was serious. But, he was. Deadly serious. Having completed his ‘side’ of the bargain, Charles puts the squeeze on Guy to do the same or he will reveal everything to the police.

Disguising herself as a man, she works as a page to Duke Orsino and quickly becomes entangled in a web of amorous pursuits gone awry, sending dukes and countesses running in disastrous directions amongst a wacky entourage of servants and mischievous freeloaders.
