Gunshot shadowgraph - Britannica ImageQuestDeath by Design is the brilliantly written story of a more than eventful weekend spent in Cookham at the home of playwright Edward Bennett and actress Sorel Bennett. Already bantering due to their failing marriage and a horrible opening night, the two are greeted by unexpected guests inviting themselves to their home. As the play develops, the cast for the country weekend includes: a more than disliked politician, a socialist, a naïve stranger, and a kooky bohemian. As though the weekend wasn’t crazy enough, it is left to Bridgit, an Irish maid with a taste for murder mysteries, to solve the murder of one of the guests in the house. Death by Design is a classic whodunit with wit and charm sure to captivate any audience.

The acting ensemble includes: Audrey Jordan as Bridgit the Irish maid, Grace Schmitt as Sorel Bennett, an actress and wife of playwright Edward Bennett, Annika Nelson as Bohemian socialite Victoria VanRoth, Delaney Agodon as Alice the some time girlfriend of the chauffuer, Wyatt Weber as Jack the cockney chauffuer, Ryley Mercado as playwright Edward Bennett, Ben Browning as parliamentarian Walter Pearce, and Alessandro Scott as socialist Eric. The production crew includes: Ben Silvernale – producer/technical director, Alena Pulhug – stage manager, Jailee Bishop – assistant stage manager, Ruby Gsellman – scenic designer, Wyatt Rosenthal and Julie Hillman – prop masters, River Gsellman and Savannah Pulhug – lighting and sound design, Olivia Bentley and Ellie Swanson – costume design, Sam Olson and Jenna Tabisola – publicity and marketing. This production of Death by Design is directed by Gretchen Nordleaf-Nelson.
