Phoenix Theatre Presents Alan Ayckbourn’s

A Comedy Thriller with Multiple Endings

In a windswept country house a family of artistic failures wrangles over a will. A detective who has never solved a case, a writer whose works have never been published, an artist who’s never shown a painting, a composer whose compositions have never been performed, and a dysfunctional teenager are the prime ingredients for this murder mystery. 
The victim, however, is not who it should be, and the murderer’s identity changes overnight. 

Throw in a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor and comedic thrills, and you’ve got The Phoenix Theatre’s production of Alan Ayckbourn’s It Could Be Any One of Us, running February 1-24, 2019.

Directed by Jay Jenkins, It Could Be Any One of Us is a play with multiple endings. Alan Ayckbourn wrote it this way and left it up to the director to choose whether he or she would want the same murderer throughout the run of the play or a different murderer for each performance.

The Phoenix’s production will surprise the audience with a different ending each night, determined by a card game on stage that steers the actors in any given direction.

Patrons are invited to see the show again at a discount to experience a different ending of the play.

The ensemble includes Susan Connors, Tom Cook, James Lynch, Curt Simmons, Tina Devrin, and Sydney Kaser. The creative team includes Jim Thompson (scenic design), Elizabeth Shipman (costume design), Linda Curry (lighting design), Susan Connors (set dressing), and Karen Thielke (prop designer).

Performance February 1-24, 2019. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2:00pm at The Phoenix Theatre, 9673 Firdale Avenue, Edmonds 98020.

Tickets are $25 adults ($20 for seniors, students and military) and are available online or by phone at 206-533-2000.

There is plenty of free parking, and ADA access into the theatre at the back of the building. Please call if you will need to use the back entrance.
