And secrets lead to murder . . .

A two-act mystery thriller. Winner of the Theatre Americana National Competition and The Players Club Playwrights First Playwriting Award for Outstanding Merit.
Grad student and artist Bret Conway has moved into an upstate New York apartment to take time off from her relationship with Mark. But this apartment hides many secrets. Sandy, the previous resident, has gone missing; the reclusive landlord likes to spy on his female tenants; and Mark may have known Sandy a little too well. While Mark tries desperately to win her back, Bret is enticed by her mysterious neighbor, Eric, who creates art out of things he finds in other people's garbage. Enter Detective Craig, a homicide detective whose haunted past now makes him obsessed with Sandy -- and with Bret. One of them is a killer who will strike again in order to satisfy an uncontrollable desire.
