SYNOPSIS: 

 

Barbara Love - a popular television 'auntie' - is planning a Christmas party. But just before it can commence, Barbara is threatened by a chilling voice on her answering machine and then receives a macabre present boxed in a miniature coffin.

 

Not so much a 'whodunnit' but more a 'who's going to do it', as along troop the staff of her television show for the Christmas buffet, each one of them with a motive to murder her. The tension mounts as this cunningly plotted thriller twists and turns towards the final spine-tingling revelation.

 

BHTC NOTES: Nancy Forsdike (playing Barbara Love) recorded in her notes how wonderful the split level set was that was designed by Tony White and built by BHTC members
