Publisher's Summary

When Jude agrees to lend her vintage chaise longue for the local Amateur Dramatic Society’s production of George Bernard Shaw’s The Devil’s Disciple, little does she realise she’ll end up in a starring role.
It’s an ambitious play, culminating in a dramatic execution scene: a scene that’s played for real when one of the leading actors is found hanging from the specially constructed stage gallows during rehearsals. A tragic accident - or something more sinister?
As Jude and her neighbour Carole know only too well, the Smalting AmDram Society is a hotbed of seething resentments, clashing egos, overreaching ambition and thwarted passion - but are any of the members emotionally-charged enough to commit murder? Carole and Jude make it their business to find out.

Always dependable

Would you consider the audio edition of The Strangling on the Stage to be better than the print version?

I always enjoy listening to Simon Brett read his own books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jude - she embraces life and ignores the things that worry so many people eg getting old.

Have you listened to any of Simon Brett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

His stories are formulaic, but none the worse for that. The Strangling on the Stage did not disappoint.
