Show Description:Fit to Kill is a masterful black-comedy murder mystery in the tradition of Wait until Dark, Deathtrap, andSleuth - a scheme of strategy, betrayal, and deception. Adrian, a charming but self-indulgent chess master, enjoys a life of luxury thanks to his marriage to Janice, an older, sexy and vibrant woman who has made a fortune as CEO of an exercise empire. The arrival of Amy, a reporter with her own agenda, unleashes a whirlwind of deadly schemes that will keep audiences guessing until the final seconds. A wonderful psychological thriller and a tantalizing game of cat-and-mouse.
The director is looking for a tight ensemble of actors capable of playing both the mounting tension and the humor of the play. It's a psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns where characters play an ever evolving game of cat-and-mouse that takes the audience on a wild ride through the Connecticut countryside. Local composer Valerie Forgione is creating a musical underscore for the piece reminiscent of the great thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock.
Roles for 2 Females (20's to young 50's) and one Male (35+).
The ages above are relative as the director is flexible to final casting. The play needs an "older" attractive, successful woman married to a "younger" chess player husband and a "younger" female reporter.
Adrian - Charming, handsome, professional chess player who is kept by his older yet beautiful wife, Janice.
Janice - Older wife of Adrian, a wealthy Connecticut CEO of a fitness empire with a history of questionable business ethics.
Amy - A young reporter sent out to interview Adrian who inserts herself into their lives. Who is she really and why is she there?
