Set in the 1960’s, this stage play is the basis for the popular TV series Columbo. A brilliant psychiatrist, Ray, is having a passionate affair with one of his patients. His wife, Claire, suspects he is having an affair and threatens to divorce him and leave him penniless if she ever catches him. He and his mistress devise a plot to kill her and make it seem like she was killed by an intruder. The execution of their plan and the creation of their perfect alibi depends on a bizarre impersonation, which they pull off beautifully. After Ray returns from vacation and “finds” his wife, he encounters the rumpled Lieutenant Columbo – whose seemingly random bouts of rambling inattention and meandering questioning mask a devilishly skilled investigator, who soon recognizes that the murder of Claire is the work of her husband. Columbo then engages the psychiatrist in a duel of wits as he works diligently to find the proof needed, But, it is the mistress who proves to be the weak link which leads to a trap and a surprising climax.
