At dinner a recorded message is played accusing each of them in turn of having a guilty secret and by the end of the evening the ten guests become nine. One by one the guests begin to die – and who is the killer?

The show features a host of familiar faces, including Verity Rushworth from Emmerdalefellow Emmerdale veteran Frazer Hines, Paul Nicholas of Just Good Friends fame, Colin Buchanan of Dalziel and Pascoe, Susan Penhaligon, Mark Curry and Ben Nealon.

The show’s producer is Bill Kenwright, with Joe Harmston directing, design by Simon Scullion, lighting by Douglas Kuhrt and sound by Matt Bugg.
