It's funny, I saw a parallel between this story and the Stacy Peterson story. In both cases love did not survive murder. Or rather, love fizzled and then the couple had this murder over their heads. The summary wasn't totally accurate, it was his aunt, not his mother. His aunt controlled his money (his father left the money in trust to the aunt). The aunt was a nasty, horrid woman who got what she deserved, but the girlfriend was a controlling hustler. She too got what she deserved.


My favorite exchange: Stuart (Tony Roberts): "Sheriff, I always know where to come, when I need a laugh.' Sheriff (Fred Gywnne):'We have plenty of 'em here and you can have them all, but one.' Stuart:'Which one is that?' Sheriff:'The LAST one.'


Keane and Gwynne my favorite two players

I know! They are both wonderful ! Love listening to any show they were in.


Did you say controlling mother and her son? Did you even hear the play? In the play her name is Aunt Millicent and she is controlling her nephew.
