Prescription Murder – Play by William Link & Richard Levison

Poster Prescription MurderPerformed: 13th –16th November 2013

It’s 1962 and Dr. Roy Fleming wants out of his marriage. With help from his girlfriend he plans the perfect murder. Unfortunately for him he hasn’t heard of the cigar smoking Lieutenant Colombo.

Prescription Murder is our first time to see the man who was to grace our TV screens for many years to come. Written by William Link and Richard Levinson the play opened in San Francisco in 1962 and it was the first appearance of brilliant detective.

However it was not until the play was adapted for television in 1968 that Colombo received the notoriety he deserved for his comical mannerisms and dogged determination to solve a case.
