Bisbee’s Obscure Productions Presents Death by Design
Bisbee’s Obscure Productions will open 2015 with Death by Design by Rob Urbinati at the Squffy Theater at Central School Project, 43 Howell Avenue in Old Bisbee. This new play is a comedy-mystery or mystery-comedy described as the love child of Agatha Christie and Noel Coward. No matter how you describe this show, it’s funny and tricky. The show opens on Friday, January 9, accompanied by wine and baked goods from the BOP Bakers.
Death by Design is a murder mystery right out of Christie delivered with the arch wit of Coward. Urbinati has created stock characters with a twist: The Maid (played by Daphne Ross), The Chauffeur (Mitchell A. Reed-Tattan), The Playwright (Carlos Peinado), The Actress (Suzi Pretty), The Bohemian (Cheri Wiens), The Politician (Bill Higgins), The Radical (Damien Farrar), and The Visitor (Kya Teskey). All of them have unexpected quirks, brought to life by BOP’s usual mix of talented veterans and newcomers.
This fun and intriguing night of theater will entertain Cochise County audiences for only six performances. See Death by Design through January 18: Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoons at 3:00 pm.
