A Tomb with a View is a comedy-thriller for four men and six women. In as sinister an old library as one is likely to come across, presided over by the portrait of a grim-faced, mad-eyed old man, a dusty lawyer reads a will (involving some millions of pounds) to an equally sinister family, one member of which has werewolf tendancies, another wanders around in a toga of Julius Caesar, a third is a gentle elderly lady who plants more than seeds in her flower-beds. By the third act there are more corpses than live members left in the cast: and what about the sympathetic nurse and the author of romantic novels, are they all, or more than they seem to be? All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.
