Snake in the Grass
Directed by Scott Ewing
Featuring Lois Ewing, Sharon Winegar and Kimberly Ewing
Miriam has cared for her father in the family home during his vituperative last years with the help of a creepily polite nurse, Alice. On Father’s death, Miriam’s older sister, handsome, divorced Annabel, comes home after over thirty years in Tasmania to find Daddy has left the bulk of his fortune to her. Alice complains to Annabel that Miriam has sacked her and is intent upon blackmail, having evidence, she says, that Miriam did away with the old man. Miriam and Annabel join forces against Alice and the blackmailer’s body is soon hurtling down the well, but all does not end there.
“A creepily, scarily, eerily enjoyable evening.” – Sunday Times
“It’s a suspense drama about murder, blackmail and haunting; there is depth and subtlety…” – Financial Times
“Subtle and powerful.” – The Guardian
