Philadelphia Fringe Festival Play "Murder!" at Chestnut Hill College
September 11 and 12, 2009
PHILADELPHIA, PA – Paul
DeVille is found dead in newspaper-man Woodrow Carlton’s lake house. The killer
must be one of his friends. Is it the womanizing Jackson? Cavalier Woodrow?
Dramatic Dahlia? Scorned Martha? Seemingly innocent Sheri, or the brooding
Landen? Find out the answer to this murder mystery when The Dark Side Theatre Company presents “Murder!” a
play written by alumna Jillian Taylor on September 4-5 and September 11-12 at
7:30 p.m., and September 6th at 3 p.m. in Gruber Theater. Gruber
Theater is located in the Chestnut Hill College Logue Library at 9601 Germantown
Avenue in Philadelphia.
“Murder!” is being presented
as part of the 2009 Philadelphia Live Arts & Fringe Festival. The
Philadelphia Fringe Festival, currently in its 13th year, produces an annual
two-week festival for local Philadelphia-based contemporary artists to showcase
their talents and creativity without a lengthy selection process. The Festival
features live art, theatre, music, comedy, poetry and interdisciplinary work in
venues across the city.
The Dark Side Theatre Company, currently in its debut
season, was founded by playwright Jillian Taylor, Liz Corcoran, and Robert
Reutter, with the mission to illuminate new and underrepresented plays and
playwrights through theatrical productions, artist development and educational
outreach. Members of the Dark Side Theatre Company involved in the production
include M. Craig Getting, Nick Marzano, Kate Reing, Courtney Bambrick, Liz
Corcoran, Rob Reutter, and alumna Melissa Stavey ’03. Jillian Taylor, a 2003
graduate of the College is a fiction writer and playwright, and is also the
managing director of The Dark Side Theatre Company.
