About this show

"This neatly staged production of British playwright Marcus Lloyd's 1999 thriller is genuinely enjoyable and gripping...Returning from a stint in New York for an open-ended run at Off-Market Theater, Dead Certain rolls into town alive and kicking..." - SF Bay Guardian " Fine performances which resonate with quiet believability and psychological honesty...Recommended for die-hard fans of mysteries and thrillers as well as purveyors of good acting, Dead Certain will certainly entertain" - SF Bay Times What makes it more intriguing is its self-referential theme, as Lloyd interweaves the plot with the story of its creation ." - San Francisco Chronicle Dead Certain is an "edge-of-your-seat" thriller returning from NYC -- where Retroviosionmedia called this production "the sleeper of New York City's black box theatre season to date" The play follows an out- of-work actor who is hired by a reclusive, theater-obsessed ex-dancer to privately act out a play she has written. The truth and illusion become almost inseparably entangled in this real life game of cat and mouse. The suspense builds layer upon layer as this taut psychological thriller gathers speed at an alarming rate towards a gripping climax. There are additional performances the first Thursday of every month at 8pm. These performances are pay what you can at the door nights.
