"And So to Sleep My Love" is a Suspense episode from 1961, but the story seems reminiscent of their radio-plays from earlier years. In it, a man devises a clever plan to murder his wife for her money.
George finally arrives at the decision that he would be better off with just the money and not May. So, he devises a way to drive her crazy by making her believe that she is hearing screaming in the night. The plan is for her to become so worn out from lack of sleep that she will turn to sleeping tablets. When she does, he plans to arrange an overdose.
"And So to Sleep My Love" was written for Suspense by Dave W. Gilbert and produced/directed by Bruno Zirato, Jr. William Redfield played George and Elaine Rost played May. Also appearing were Bernard Remlo and Bryna Rayburn. Abby Lewis provided the voice of the screaming woman.
