The House by the Lake
The House by the Lake by British playwright Hugh Mills (1906-1971). A thriller first produced in 1956 at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London and has since become a staple of amateur dramatics. The main characters are Maurice and Stella, a brother and sister who plot to murder their unlikeable brother, Colin. The other characters include Maurice's wife, Janet, Colin's long-suffering wife, Iris, and Colonel Forbes, a neighbour.
