Set in an isolated former hunting lodge in the Scottish Highlands, Death Knell follows Henry Roth, a famous playwright and his wife Evelyn, as they await the arrival of his new ‘muse’ – a charming and charismatic young actor called Jack Willoughby who is determined to secure a role in the playwright’s latest production.
What starts out as a seemingly innocent audition soon leads to an evening full of twists, turns and eventually . . . murder.
