The Potomac Playmakers have announced the third show of the 2017–18 Season, Rob
Urbinati’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

Produced under special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., "Death By Design"
