In Silhouette, a detective questions an actress about the murder of her husband – and, while she is in the clear, a drunken journalist sleeping in her bed had argued with him shortly beforehand. The second half of the play is set before the murder and all expectations about the characters and plot are suddenly turned on their heads.
