by Rupert Holmes (Tony Award)
September 8 to October 8, 2017
Rupert Holmes was the winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s coveted “Edgar” award (the “Oscar” of crime and suspense). Accomplice is “the comedy thriller of all comedy thrillers!” to quote the L.A. Times.
The story begins in Dartmoor, England at the stylish weekend retreat of the affluent Derek and Janet Taylor, and both adultery and murder are in the air. But we will soon learn that all is never as it seems in this electrifying game of trickery and misdirection. Who is the hunter and who the hunted… and precisely who is the Accomplice?
This theatrical roller coaster surprises, twists and turns will trigger screams of laughter. But remember, you must vow to keep it’s secrets hush-hush.
Performance times are Friday and Saturday at 8:00pm and Sunday at 2:00pm

Hannah Logan received a Craig Noel Award for her turn as Agnes in ion’s Bug, and a nomination for her portrayal of Virginia in New Village Art’s The Clean House. She assistant-directed Robby Lutfy with Bad Jews at Cygnet Theatre, and this summer her writing was featured in Out to Lunch, named one of the SD Fringe’s “Best Bets” by the Union-Tribune. She can be seen as the daffy, self-obsessed Huldey in Diversionary Theatre’s upcoming The Moors. As half of Logan Squared Productions, she co-produces artsy things with her too patient and massively talented partner Ron Logan.
Tatiana Mac is happily home after an extended run as Anastasia Steele in 50 Shades! The Parody at Bally’s Casino in Las Vegas. Her last appearance here at SRT was in The Gift Teller.

Fred Harlow (Dramaturge) can usually be found on the stage having appeared here in An Inspector Calls, Brooklyn Boy, Tribute and many others. People ask what a dramaturge does: A dramaturge (or ‘dramaturg’) is a professional within a theatre or opera company who deals mainly with research and development of plays or operas. Thank you SRT for this opportunity. Fred dedicates this production to the memory of his sister Crystal.
Lisa Burgess (Costume Design) Lisa Burgess has been costuming local theatre since 2007.

Trained at Circle in the Square (NYC), Jo Anne is an acting and voice teacher and has served as dialect coach for MOXIE, New Village Arts and Cygnet.
Dawn Fuller-Korinek (Props Mistress) is joining SRT in another capacity this season. While her main background is in costuming, over the years she has found herself crossing over to props and set design. Since she’s such a (self-described) “pack rat,” loaning items for productions has been an easy contribution. So, to her supportive husband…yes, this set looks like home – because it is one of our previous living rooms. J
Ted Leib (Sound Design) credits include: Spelling Bee (Intrepid), One Flea Spare and Bug (Hunger Artists); Vanya and Sasha…etc, The Dark at the Top of the Stairs, The Fantasticks, Good People, The Heir Apparent, The Liar, Five Course Love, Out on a Limb, Sleuth, Skin Deep, Murder at the Howard Johnson’s, and Lettice and Lovage (SRT); Picnic, Boeing, Boeing, The Boys Next Door, A Year With Frog and Toad, Lost in Yonkers, Barefoot in the Park, Jacob Marley’s Christmas (OTC), among others.

He has designed and built sets in various regions across the nation, and several years ago one of his sets appeared in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. While in the Marines he even designed a set in Okinawa, Japan. Hailing from New Jersey, Bob settled in Poway in 1988 when he worked on his first set at the Legler Benbough Theatre as Scene Shop Foreman for USIU.
