Lord Peter returns for FOUR NIGHTS ONLY!

As part of our year-long 30th Anniversary celebration, Lifeline Theatre is thrilled to bring Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane back to our stage for a limited-engagement series.

Over the course of the 2012-13 season, we will present benefit concert readings of the four beloved Dorothy L. Sayers mysteries adapted by ensemble member Frances Limoncelli over the past decade. Frances will direct the performances, ensemble members Peter Greenbergand Jenifer Tyler will reprise their roles as Lord Peter and Harriet Vane, and many original cast members from all four productions will return. Plus, we’ll be joined by special guests like Janet Ulrich BrooksOra JonesBarbara Robertson, and Eric Simonson!

Don’t miss this opportunity to revisit these beloved gems (or to experience them for the first time).
