Stage Door players goes back to the boards Friday with the comedic Murder Mystery,”Death by Design” by Rob Urbanati. Suehyla El-Attar directs.

Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, “Death by Design” answers the question of what would happen if Noel Coward were to pen an Agatha Christie murder mystery.
A celebrated playwright and his actress wife flee to the countryside after a disastrous opening night, only to find themselves visited by various surprise guests, all with secrets – until one of them ends up being murdered. Solving the crime will be up to the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide.
Featuring returning SDP favorites Daniel Burns (Edwin Drood, Godspell), Kelly Criss, (Moon Over Buffalo, Miracle on South Division Street) Joanna Daniel (The Last Romance), and Sarah Newby Halicks (I Do, I Do, I Do), with Chase Steven Anderson, Kevin Stillwell, Bryn Striepe, and Pat Young all making their Stage Door Players’ debuts.
