Bellevue Little Theater to play “Death by Design” | Nice view

Bellevue Little Theater will present the mystery “Death by Design” on weekends, opening January 14th and closing January 30th. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evening and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

This mysterious play, with comedy elements, is best described as a blend of the wit of Noel Coward and the mysterious plots and unexpected twists and turns of Agatha Christie, theater officials said.

“Death by Design” follows the story of famous actor couple Edward and Soral Bennett who retired to their estates to recover from the disastrous opening of their latest stage adventure.

They are unexpectedly joined by a diverse group of “friends” who bring their quirky personalities to the reunion.

An unexpected murder unites the group as they, along with Bridget the Maid and Jack the Driver, struggle to solve the murder. An unexpected and confused stranger joins the group, and the result offers an interesting and surprising evening of murder, mixed with elements of comedy.

Who is guilty ? The audience won’t know until the final scene.

COVID precautions are in place and members of the public are asked to wear a mask during production.

Reservations will be limited and can be made online at or by calling 402-291-1554 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
