Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim
from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich,
beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the
perfect New York apartment; and the chance to play
Hamlet in Central Park. There are, however, a couple of
glitches in paradise. Andrew’s series has been canceled;
his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity with unyielding
conviction; and he has no desire to play Hamlet. When
Andrew’s agent visits him, she reminisces about her brief
romance with John Barrymore many years ago, in
Andrew’s apartment. This prompts a séance to summon
his ghost.

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 – 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.

“I want your fear. For your fear, like a current, rushes
through your body. Your fear makes your heart pound, it
renders your veins rich and full. Your fear hemorrhages
deliciously within you.” This new adaptation restores the
suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker’s classic novel
to the stage. As Count Dracula begins to exert his will
upon the residents of London, they try to piece together
the clues of his appearances—in a valiant attempt to save
themselves from a hideous fate. Rich with both humor
and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture
of Stoker’s famous vampire.

The three Verdeen cousins Gaynelle, Peaches, and Jimmie Wyvette could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. Their outrageous antics have delighted local gossips in the small town of Sweetgum (just down the road from Fayro) and the eyes of Texas are upon them, as their self-righteous Aunt LaMerle is quick to point out. Having “accidentally” crashed her minivan through the
bedroom wall of her husband’s girlfriend’s doublewide, Gaynelle is one frazzled nerve away from a spectacular meltdown. Peaches, a saucy firebrand and the number one mortuarial cosmetologist in the tri-county area, is struggling to decide if it’s time to have her long
absent trucker husband declared dead. And Jimmie Wyvette, the rough-around-the-edges store manager of Whatley’s Western
Wear, is resorting to extreme measures to outmaneuver a priss-pot neighbor for the affections of Sweetgum’s newest widower. But the cousins can’t back out of the reunion now. It’s on, Gaynelle’s hosting it, and Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette have decided that its success is the perfect way to prove Gaynelle’s sanity to a skeptical court
-appointed psychologist. Unfortunately, they face an uphill battle.
