The Potomac Playmakers announce the third show of the 2017-2018 Season, Rob Urbinati’s comedy, Death By Design! 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. Death by Design is more than homage – it’s a new classic!
Produced under special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., Death By Design is directed by Nic Sigman with Wanda Dittman, and stars Bob Ashby, Amaya Dull, Karen Holmes, Andrew King, Barb McCormick, Devin Taylor, Kaitlyn Teach, and Tod Williams. Death By Design will run February 9, 10, 11, 16, & 17, 2018 at The Women’s Club, located at 31 S. Prospect Street, Hagerstown, Maryland 21740. The curtain will rise at 8:00 pm for the Friday and Saturday performances, while, the Sunday matinee will be at 3:00 pm. Discounted $11 tickets are available in advance at www.potomacplaymakers.org, while $13 general admission seats will be available at the door.
