The Potomac Playmakers have announced auditions for the third show of the 2017–2018
Season, Rob Urbanati’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

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

Produced under special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., Death ByDesign
will be directed by Nic Sigman. The cast calls for four men and four women,
ranging in age from 20’s to 50’s. Auditions for Death By Design will be
held on November 12, 2017 at 6:00 and November 13, 2017 at 7:00 pm at The
Women’s Club, located at 31 S. Prospect Street, Hagerstown, Maryland 21740.
There will be cold readings from the script. Show dates for Death BY Design
will be February 9, 10, 11, 16, & 17, 2018, with possible additional
performances TBA.
