At the start of this play, the court room is full for today's trial. Two young men, Simon Clark and Dan Smith, stand up. The clerk asks, 'Are you guilty of the murder of Mary Jones?' 'Not guilty!' they reply. But perhaps they are guilty. The police found the murder weapon in their stolen car, and there was blood on Simon's face. If the court finds them guilty, they will go to prison for a very long time. Can the lawyers find out the truth, by asking the right questions? Everyone in court wants to know who murdered Mary Jones, especially her mother, and her boyfriend, Jim. You can help to find the answer, too!

It is summer time in an English holiday town. A young girl lies dead on the beach. Who killed her? Was it Simon and Dan, the two young men who met her, and danced with her, at the disco that night? They sometimes steal cars, but are they guilty of murder?
What really happened that night at the disco? There are witnesses who say that there was a fight. Who followed Mary when she left? Was she alone? And what about Mary’s boyfriend, Jim? Did he really love her? Perhaps he was a little jealous, and angry …
The court needs to find answers to all these questions, because murder is a very serious crime, and murderers are often sent to prison for life.
