Getting Away With Murder
by Stephen Sondheim & George Furth. Directed by Gordon Ellis.
One evening when patients arrive for group therapy as usual in Dr. Bering’s office, they discover that the doctor has been murdered! Who did it? The cast of characters include an interesting group of patients. Does the fact that the doctor is the last and only tenant in this otherwise empty, guarded security building confirm that one of them had to have done it? To call the police will subject them to reckless scandal, relentless investigation and turn them all into fodder for the hungry media, so a collective decision is made to try to solve the murder themselves. The play then is propelled by a series of twists and turns and red herrings, along with some hold-your-breath shocks, all culminating in an explosive surprise ending. Act One is a “whodunit” and by its end the audience knows the murderer. Act Two becomes a suspense play. will the characters figure it out? Will someone actually be “getting away with murder?”
