A Comedy with Murder

Dixon Stage Left presents DEATH BY DESIGN |  Nov 30, Dec 1, 2, 3 and Dec 7, 8, 9, 10

What's it all about?

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 the homicide, to solve the crime. Death by Design is more than homage – it’s a new classic.
