Opening night of the season at Winnipeg?s Prairie Theatre Centre is a glittering event on the city's arts calendar, and this October, there is real drama happening offstage. Gerald Blaise, the company's well-loved Artistic Director has failed to show up. Gerald's car is found the following day, north of the city, when a couple of dogs take a keen interest in the bloody contents of the trunk. Since Gerald's remains have been discovered outside the city limits, Sergeant Roxanne Calloway of the RCMP finds herself investigating the death.
PTC's next play up is to be Shakespeare's Macbeth, an unlucky play according to theatrical tradition. That rings true, for the staff, cast and crew as well as Roxanne. When a second body is found, this time in a city park, Roxanne finds herself having to work alongside the cynical Detective Sergeant Cooper Jenkins of the Winnipeg's Police Services.
Theatre is a different world with its own jargon, where fact and fiction merge, lies are delivered as truth, and where people with active imaginations conjure up convincing stories. Who is Roxanne supposed to believe.
