DEATH BY DESIGN  - A Comedy with a Murder - by Rob Urbinati

What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel 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 most popular writers ever

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 near-sighted ingenue, 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
