More About Lifeline Theatre Presents Whose Body?

Lifeline Theatre presents Whose Body?, the first production of the 2019-2020 season, September 6 – November 10. Ensemble member Frances Limoncelli, adaptor of 2009's Busman's Honeymoon (Non-Equity Jeff Award: New Adaptation), 2006's Gaudy Night (Non-Equity Jeff Award: New Adaptation), and 2004's Strong Poison (Non-Equity Jeff Awards: New Adaptation), teams up with Jess Hutchinson, director of 2019’s The Man Who Was Thursday, to re-explore this beloved and charming whodunit for a new generation. When a dead body turns up in a bathtub wearing nothing but a pair of pince-nez, amateur detective Lord Peter Wimsey assigns himself to the case. However, when the mystery becomes labyrinthine he enlists the help of close friend Inspector Parker to follow his only lead, a teaching hospital near the scene of the crime. Could it be a harmless prank by a medical student or something more sinister? Follow the clues and uncover the truth in this beloved 1923 whodunit by Dorothy L. Sayers. The production runs approximately 2 hours with an intermission. The novel will be on sale in the lobby.
