Ten Minute Alibi - Play, Drama

28 December 1943

This drama by Anthony Armstrong is a detective story; but it does not deal in mystery. The audience sees the crime planned, in the form of a dream represented on the stage; and then sees it committed.The thing that keeps expectation active, and replaces the spectator's customary urge to see the murderer unmasked, is the ever present question: "Will the young man who has killed his enemy be able to sustain the alibi he has laboriously manufactured, or will the police succeed in finding some flaw in it?" (Sydney Morning Herald, 21 May 1934).
