SJCT: Now Showing, Death by Design
We hear from Nathan Kessler-Jeffrey, Executive Artistic Director, San Juan Community Theatre…
What a storm that was! On day one, I was standing outside, watching the snow fall, blanketing the ground in white. On day two, I was bundled up in the house, making soup, watching movies and playing games. On day three…I was going a little stir-crazy. Sometimes you just need to get out and have fun, right? I find that no matter how beautiful the snow, two days of being cooped up are about all I can take! Fortunately, we have a fantastic opportunity for a great night out with SJCT’s hilarious new production, Death by Design, directed by Joy Van Camp.
This delightful play combines everything you’d expect of a classic murder mystery with all the things you love about a drawing room comedy. Secret motivations, plots, subterfuge, and murder feel right at home beside witty repartee, underhanded compliments, outrageous characters, and a mild dose of satirical social commentary. If you enjoy Agatha Christie, Noel Coward, Sherlock Holmes, or Oscar Wilde, this is going to be a show you don’t want to miss!
