Death By Design. Roberto Guajardo, the director of this play put on by Live Theatre Workshop, says, “While you may not literally die laughing at ‘Death by Design,’ you are guaranteed to chuckle, chortle and guffaw at this comedy/murder mystery.” Well sign us up! We’re especially intrigued that he doesn’t guarantee no audience members will literally die, only saying that we “may not.” The show is about playwright Edward Bennett and his wife, actress Sorel Bennett, who fled London for their country manor after a disastrous opening night in 1932. One by one, ridiculous guests—like a fiery socialist and a nearsighted ingenue—start showing up, and, of course, one of the guests ends up murdered. Who did it? There’s only one way to find out. 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. on Sundays from Saturday, Oct. 13 through Saturday, Nov. 11, with an additional Saturday matinee on Nov. 11. Preview shows at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 11 and Friday, Oct. 12. Live Theatre Workshop, 5317 E. Speedway Blvd. $20 GA, $18 military/student/senior, $15 Thursdays and previews. Details Here.
