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 hilarious, 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 – 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. Death by Design is more than homage – it’s a new classic.
BRIDGIT – The maid. Irish, crabby, warm-hearted.
JACK – The chauffer. Cockney, charming, clever.
EDWARD BENNETT – The playwright. Urbane, vain.
SOREL BENNETT – The actress. Glamorous, daffy.
WALTER PEARCE – The politician. Stiff, conservative.
ERIC – The radical. Emphatic, fiery.
VICTORIA VAN ROTH – The Bohemian. Intense, artistic.
ALICE – The visitor. Sweet, shy.
