Swamp Cabbage Festival Appearance for former Lehigh Acres Resident
The Cyrano Game
Psycho stalked his prey for months before he came up with a plan, sitting in a darkened theater while Sarah and Matthew, her new husband, watched the play Cyrano de Bergerac. Of course! He would force the undeserving Matthew to tell him everything he needed to know about Sarah while discrediting him in her eyes. Intensive planning and building took all of his spare time, but she was worth it, and soon she would come to him.
Matthew wakes up in a room with no exit, drugged and tied to a dentist chair. A voice soon commands him to give details of his life with Sarah. Every attempt to resist and escape fails. He tries to give false advice, which only backfires. He has to find a way to give clues to Sarah through the psycho's actions that will let her know not to trust this man as he gets closer to her.
