Additional Info

Winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s coveted “Edgar” award (the “Oscar” of crime and suspense) and written by Tony® award winner Rupert Holmes, Accomplice has thrilled audiences on Broadway, across the United States and around the word. The New York Times has called it“a deliciously witty cocktail of a whodunit with a maniacally seamless plot where skullduggery emerges the winner!” This theatrical roller coaster will trigger screams of laughter even as audiences vow to keep its secrets hush-hush. The story begins in Dartmoor, England at the stylish weekend retreat of the affluent Derek and Janet Taylor, and both adultery and murder are in the air. But we will soon learn that all is never as it seems in this electrifying game of trickery and misdirection. Who is the hunter and who the hunted…and precisely who is the title character of Accomplice? “The best fooler since Sleuth and twice as clever!” said the L.A.Times, while L.A.Theatre & Entertainment Review proclaimed it “the comedy thriller of all comedy thrillers!”
