The Cast


In the seemingly quiet town of Bere Knighton there
is never a dull moment for Dr Richard Forth. Not
only does he have a hectic work schedule and an
awkward friendship with his ex-girlfriend, but
his wife, Barbara, is constantly ill and nobody
knows what is wrong with her. When Eric Dawson,
a stranger, claims to have known Richard’s second
fiancée, a woman Richard claims does not exist,
Barbara’s health worsens and she isn’t the only
one. With bad luck spreading almost as quickly
as bad news, it seems somebody is out to kill
Barbara, and anyone else who gets in their way.
Thrillers are something of a departure for Bare Bones
but the company played to good houses and the
feedback was very enthusiastic. We may do another
one at some time!
