Square One Theatre opens its 23rd Season with David Foley’s Deadly Murder, a brilliantly intricate thriller guaranteed to be one step ahead of the audience all the way! Deadly Murder opens Friday, November 2 and continues on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through Saturday, November 17 (2012) at Square One’s home base, the Stratford Theatre, located at 2422 Main Street in Stratford, Connecticut.
Camille Dargus has beauty, brains, wealth and a successful career. She also has a penchant for attractive young men. One night she meets a young waiter and takes him back to her SoHo apartment and finds that there’s more to the man than meets the eye. Soon Camille finds herself held hostage at gunpoint by a man who seems frighteningly familiar with the past Camille struggles to forget. Full of twists, turns and bluffs, the cast of Deadly Murder includes two Square One audience favorites, Al Kulcsar and Peggy Nelson with Josh Wills making his Square One Theatre debut.
