Getting Away With Murder - DPS ACTING EDITION $13

Stephen Sondheim & George Furth

Published by Dramatists Play Service

7 Male 4 Female

Sondheim's first non-musical play is a whodunit which opens on a stormy night on Manhattan's Upper West Side as a group therapy sessions gathers ...

... only to find their Pulitzer prize-winning psychiatrist is missing

It seems this Pulitzer Prize-winning doctor might be writing another book and it further seems these patients might be his subjects

The Group consists of Martin Chisholm, an ambitious political consultant; Dossie Lustig, a sensual restaurant hostess; the snob socialite Pamela Prideaux; Vassili Laimorgos, a sly dealer in antiques and collectibles; the rich and arrogant real estate mogul Gregory Reed; a cop with a grudge, Dan Gerard; and Nam-Jun Vuong, a college instructor and resentful would-be administrator

On this particular evening the members of the Group gather as usual in Dr. Bering's office only to discover that the doctor has been murdered

So who did it?

Act One is a "whodunit" and by its end the audience knows the murderer

Act Two becomes a suspense play

Will the characters figure it out?

Or will someone actually be "getting away with murder?"

"... devilishly delicious doings ... That hasn't happened since Deathtrap" ~ NY Daily News
