Death Knell by James Cawood
Auditions: February 26 & 27

Set in an isolated former hunting lodge in the Scottish Highlands, Death Knell follows Henry Roth, a famous playwright and his wife Evelyn, as they await the arrival of his new muse – a charming and charismatic young actor called Jack Willoughby who is determined to secure a role in the playwright's latest production. What starts out as a seemingly innocent audition soon leads to an evening full of twists, turns and eventually... murder. Mixing black comedy and shocks of the highest order, Death Knell reinvents the classic thriller genre and will leave audiences breathless and beguiled right up to the final curtain. Director Laura Schlecht is seeking cast members to fill 4 roles.
