Stage Struck, an inventive thriller that employs a handful of actors to play chameleon-like parts within parts, opens in the living room of one Robert Simon. Formerly a first-rate stage manager in a provincial repertory company, he now keeps house for his West End actress wife. He is a thoroughly happy man until the clumsy intervention of a psychiatrist destroys his happiness and his marriage. He plans a hideous revenge on his wife and the psychiatrist, a revenge which allows him to rediscover all his old talents.
