Help me choose a bridge for my adaptational play:
Three-Puppet SaluterI tried writing this back in 2010, but I abandoned it because I never found a way around this thorny problem. I've had some ideas since, and also seen some truly dreadful local plays to motivate me, but none of the ideas are perfectly satisfactory. So here's the basic structure:

The time is now,I take it you have considered the fact that for there to be a corpse, there has to have been a death. Who is to be resposible for that? If it is the Lead, then that would easily gravitate towards the wife being the main suspect- no evidence of anyone else around. He would have to reveal and confess to murder to save her. However she could well also be convicted of a crime. In the UK if she knew of the murder then it is called 'Joint Enterprise', and even if she did not strike a single blow, she would be prosecuted for murder, especially if present at the time. If she doesn't know then the victim (not the actor, as the audience won't see him that clearly) have to be as near to perfectly identical as possible to fool the wife. Your other option is fake suicide.
Do the job in front of you.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
