Death in High Heels, 4th Mainstage Magenta’s 2019 Season

Sunday, October 13, 2019, 2:30 AM - 5:00 AM

Death in High Heels, 4th Mainstage production for Magenta’s 2019 Season
“Death in High Heels” is a British play based on Christianna Brand’s debut crime novel of the same name. The play is by Richard Harris, directed by Dana Black, and produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Magenta Theater’s fourth production of its 17th season will be presented October 4-19, 2019.
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.
This is Dana Black’s third directing project with Magenta Theater. Her first was in 2005 with the one act “Getting Over It.” Ms. Black holds the distinction of being a founding member of Magenta Theater, having performed in its first production of “Oh, Baby, Baby!” in 2003. Dana was recently seen as Princess Aquanetta in the November 2018 production of “Once Upon a Palace Purple.” This is Dana’s first mainstage show to direct at Magenta Theater and is excited to have been presented with such an intriguing and entertaining script.
