Death by Chocolate
February 20 through March 8, 2015

Part murder mystery and part black comedy, Death By Chocolate, is the next offering in Edmonds Driftwood Players 2014-2015 Main Stage season running Feb. 20-March 8.

The character Nick Noir, private eye, has fallen on hard times. His last botched case has cost him whatever jobs may have come his way - he may even be forced to fire his devoted secretary. That is until Vinnie the Leech falls over dead at Precious Perks Coffee Shoppe, poisoned by their signature drink Death By Chocolate. Directed by David Alan Morrison, this production will keep you in stitches and on the edge of your seat.

Edmonds Driftwood Players is proud to partner with FIVE Restaurant Bistro on a Dinner / Show offering. For $40 per person, patrons can enjoy dinner at FIVE (650 Edmonds Way) before heading over to the Wade James Theatre. Includes one show ticket, an appetizer, entrée and special Death By Chocolate dessert (chocolate gelato affogato).

About the Playwright: Chicago-born Craig Sodaro began writing plays in grade school and continued creating unusual dramatic pieces (The Dismembered Pencil) in high school. While attending Marquette University in Milwaukee, he studied playwriting and had several shows produced by the university theater group, the Marquette Players. With a degree in journalism and English, Sodaro began a teaching career that would last thirty-three years. During that time he continued to write plays, often for schools or theatrical groups with which he worked. This led to his first published play, Forlorn at the Fort, in Plays Magazine, a melodrama written for the Frontier Outlaw Troupe which he directed for thirteen years. In 1976 his first full-length play, Tea and Arsenic, appeared, and since that time he has had over one hundred plays published by various play publishers around the country. His plays Hush, Little Baby, and Second Hand Kid were performed in New York and Los Angeles, and his works have been produced around the world.
