So you know that really famous part in Hamlet where he stages a play that’s similar to how he thinks his dad actually died so he can see how his uncle reacts to it? Well, this is kinda like that, except all the characters are involved in the theater, so they’re completely insufferable.
A playwright’s actress fiancee dies one night, and the cops believe it was a suicide. He spends a year writing a play that could be what happened to her, and invites all the people involved in the night to the theater and locks them in, forcing them to act out his play. Will he catch the conscious of the king? Or will it just be a lot of Jeff Goldblum stuttering? WHO CAN SAY?!
I’m not going to spoil the ending because, even though it’s really dumb, it’s not 100% obvious. And I guess when it comes to a mystery, that’s kind of important. What a twist! Shut up, I’m tired.
