About this show

Dead Certain is the captivating tale of an out-of-work actor who is hired by a reclusive, theatre-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 a mouse. The suspense builds layer upon layer as this taut psychological thriller gathers speed at an alarming rate towards a gripping climax. For groups 5+, please call 415-307-0470. " This production is the sleeper of New York City's small theatre season to date...Mr. Lloyd's Oxford education is on display in this excellent work and it only goes to prove what an above average foundation in literary skill combined with mindful direction can do to produce a complete and unblemished theatrical product." - NYC. "A standing ovation for this deadly jewel of a play." - SF Station "What makes it more intriguing is its self-referential theme, as Lloyd interweaves the plot with the story of its creation." - San Francisco Chronicle "Returning from a stint in New York, Dead Certain rolls into town alive and kicking...This neatly staged production of British playwright Marcus Lloyd's 1999 thriller is genuinely enjoyable and gripping..." - SF Bay Guardian " Fine performances which resonate with quiet believability and psychological (albeit twisted) 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
