When a body is found in a disused ice-works and a man confesses to killing his lover, two detectives are caught in a labyrinth of clues starting with the phrase: 'my beautiful Annabel Lee'. Set in a seedy nether-world, Chilling and Killing My Annabel Lee explores the nature of crime and guilt, both real and figurative. This ingenious play of mystery and murder is inspired by classic film noir and the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. Spun around the confessions of a writer and his muse fatale, this is a world of seductive and compelling stories of betrayal, loss and lust. The author puts a humorous and contemporary spin on a highly intriguing plot that will have you guessing right to the last page (2 acts, 4 men, 4 women, 1 body).
