A group of the usual British murder-mystery types gather for a weekend retreat at the sumptuous country estate of the esteemed Lady Somerset. There’s the major who served in India; the inebriated, fading actor; the innocent ingenue; the exotic lady in red; the mysterious Chinese gentleman; the rich dowager aunt; and her faithful maid and worthless nephew. Suddenly one of them dies of poison! Well, of course. Oh, what fun!

But wait. Her Ladyship refuses to summon the police! She says she won’t go through all of this again. All what again? And why were they all invited here in the first place? Is this actually just another formulaic, all-to-predictable mystery story? Or is something diabolically, different? Agatha Christie meets Pirandello, as characters rebel against their author. It’s bloody murder.
