Mystery & Comedy Warm Up Spring With Piccolo’s Private Eyes

Posted by Admin On January - 30 - 2017

EVANSTON, IL – New year, new home, new comedy!  Recently relocated to the Parish House at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, in Evanston, Piccolo’s 2016/2017 season continues with Private Eyes, by Steven Dietz, a modern comedy/relationship/thriller set in the theatre, or restaurant, or therapist’s office, or real life.  Matthew’s wife, Lisa, is having an affair with Adrian, a British director.  Or perhaps the affair is part of a play being rehearsed.  Or perhaps Matthew has imagined it all.  But a mysterious woman who seems to shadow the others brings the story to its surprising conclusion…or does she?  The audience plays the role of detective in this hilarious, multi-layered comedy of suspicion about love, lust, and the power of deception in which nothing is ever quite what it seems.
