Death in High Heels

Magenta Theater
606 Main St. Vancouver

First impressions can be deceiving, intentionally or otherwise. And in a high-end dress shop in Regent Street, London in 1937, you never know when or how someone's threads will fray. Everyday events take a dramatic turn over a lunch of rabbit curry when senior employee, Miss Doon, collapses and dies, poisoned by the oxalic acid crystals that another employee has been using to clean her hat. Inspector Charlesworth and Sergeant Wyler have a murder enquiry on their hands. Behind the glamour and gossip of a 1930s fashion house, secrets and lies are rife and more than one person may have harbored resentment towards Miss Doon. This play is sprinkled with surprising humor, poignant historical notes, and a mystery that the audience will enjoy piecing together along with the British Police.
