Winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s coveted “Edgar” award and written by Tony Award winner Rupert Holmes, Accomplice has thrilled audiences on Broadway, across the United States and around the word. This theatrical roller coaster will trigger screams of laughter even as audiences vow to keep its secrets hush-hush. 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 title character of Accomplice? It’s a sexually intriguing murder mystery meets a Noises Off-style farce. Just when you think you know what will happen next, a new plot line unfolds and a new turn takes the audience in a completely different direction. “The best fooler since Sleuth and twice as clever!” said the L.A.Times, while L.A.Theatre & Entertainment Review proclaimed it “the comedy thriller of all comedy thrillers!”
