Death by Design by Rob Urbinati
What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noël Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife, Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingénue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.
The show will run from Friday, September 27, 2019 – Sunday, October 6, 2019. A Friday, Saturday, Sunday plus second week Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday run. ***Please make sure you are available for all dates.*** Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances are at 7:30pm.
