Stranger in the Attic, synopsis

Brian, a true crime writer, receives a late-night visitor claiming to have all the details of a murder that has not happened yet. Defying pleas from his wife and his own better judgement to report this to the police, Brian decides to interview the stranger. Dana, Brian’s wife, becomes fearful Brian may be sympathizing with the murderer, as Brian helplessly allows himself to be drawn deeper into the plot. 

Stranger in the Attic has very modest production demands; one contemporary set with six characters. It was developed from the original thriller, The Assassin’s New Friend, which itself has had several successful productions. Stranger in the Attic is a fast-moving, suspense driven thriller with colorful characters, surprising plot twists, and a generous sprinkling of comic relief.
