Auditions for Death by Design – Nov. 17-18

What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noël Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie?

Death by Design – a comedy with songs and murder with music and lyrics by Peter Mills.

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.

The Prince Edward Community Theatre seeks individuals with a sense of humor to audition for this two-act play to be performed in May at the Mt Tabor Theatre in Milford.

Producer Director Philip A Knox is seeking four female and four male actors to audition with cold readings from the script on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 1-3 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 18 from 1-3 p.m. Both audition sessions are at the Picton Town Hall, 2 Ross St., Picton.

Production and rehearsal start in February 2019 with production dates of May 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26.

Synopsis:
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.
