Coming Next….

Wednesday 13th November - Saturday 16th March 2019


Desperate to find a job, Henry Scrubb answers a box number advertisement in a

newspaper, offering a “big financial reward” and requiring no qualifications. He does

not really expect anything to come of it, but to his surprise the advertiser, a Mr

Franklyn, does contact him and explains the conditions of the job.


Franklyn needs, he says, someone to murder him and believes that Henry would be the right person to do it. He gives no reason for this strange request, but offers Henry £3000 if he will

carry out his wishes. Henry refuses to have anything to do with the scheme and

Franklyn goes away.

That night, however, Henry receives some disturbing news….


From this exciting beginning, Derek Benfield builds a suspenseful drama that keeps

the audience guessing until the very last moment.
