Peachtree City Atlanta Bread Company to Host Whodunit

Offshoot Productions’ latest audience-participation mystery, Rehearsal for Murder, is headed to a new venue. The popular show, which played to standing room only audiences in the fall, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 25, at Atlanta Bread Company in Peachtree City.

The play involves two striving actors, Toby and Anne, and director/playwright Marcy Masters, who has recently escaped punishment for murder with a successful insanity plea. The characters may seem familiar to some audience members as the play is a sequel to Audition for Murder, which Offshoot presented two years ago. Co-written by Susan M. Steadman, Ph.D., Offshoot’s artistic director, and Paige Steadman, Rehearsal for Murder takes place several years after Audition for Murder, when all the characters (except, of course, the one murdered in Audition) meet at a regional audition where they are trapped in a malfunctioning freight elevator. Here, old disagreements, yearnings and blame mix and ignite, resulting in the death of one of the characters.

The audience plays the roles of police detectives, with one lucky audience member providing the offstage voice of the elevator repairman. At the conclusion of the action, the occupants of each table vote on whether the death was accident, suicide or murder…and if it was murder, whodunit.

Tickets, $10 each, may be picked up in person at Atlanta Bread, 401 City Circle in the Avenue shopping center, which is located at the intersection of GA 74 and GA 54. Tickets may also be purchased by credit card online at www.offshoot.org, or ordered by mail. Checks should be sent to Offshoot Productions, P.O. Box 2462, Peachtree City, GA 30269. As previous performances of the comic puzzler have been sold out, early ticket purchase is strongly recommended.
