About the Play:

Who Saw Him Die? is a full-length drama by Tudor Gates. An obsessive, psychopathic Scotland Yard detective and a likeable but murderous master criminal square off in this fast-moving psychological thriller with a shocking twist.

Who Saw Him Die? sees former Police Superintendent Pratt driven by desire to track down John Rawlings, the criminal who has eluded him for years. When Pratt, who has still not traced the proceeds of Rawlings last and most audacious crime, is summoned to Dr. Adcock's surgery and presented with what appears to be Rawlings' body, he is totally defeated, his purpose in life is gone. Things are not what they seem and as a result of an intricate and cunning criminal plot, Pratt finds himself engaged in a ruthless duel of wits and bluff that leads to a grim and tense climax.

Who Saw Him Die? toured Edinburgh and Glasgow in 1974 before it enjoyed a lengthy run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the West End of London. The play enjoyed widespread acceptance in Australia, France, Germany, South Africa and New Zealand, and has become a popular choice for school and community theatre productions.
