I’LL BE BACK BEFORE MIDNIGHT! was named in a recent Toronto Globe & Mail retrospective on Canadian theatre as "probably the most produced Canadian play ever." The play has grossed over $8 million world wide, and has had countless productions in Canada, the USA and Europe, placing the author among the top playwrights working in the mystery thriller genre today. The play is an exciting mixture of suspense and shocks, with just the right amount of comedy added. The author, Peter Colley, writes this about himself: “I have a certain sense of humour, a kind of tongue-in-cheek approach, if you like, that finds its way into my work. Comedy is very important. You have to walk a tightrope between suspense and comedy.
