Seattle Repertory Theatre presents:


by Jeffrey Hatcher

Directed by Steven Dietz

October 4 - November 4, 2007

(Opening Night: Wednesday, October 10)

Seattle, WA - Join Seattle Repertory Theatre as they look at the wickedly funny minds of three murderers with Jeffrey Hatcher's comedy Murderers, directed by Seattle director Steven Dietz. Murderers plays in the Leo K. Theatre from October 4 through November 4. Previews begin October 4, with opening night set for October 10. Tickets are available through the Seattle Repertory Theatre box office seven days a week at (206) 443-2222, toll-free at (877) 900-9285, as well as online at

Gerald, Lucy and Minka have all been very naughty! In fact, they are murderers. They also happen to be residents of Riddle Key Retirement Community in Florida. That these disparate characters committed murder is not in question, but as for why...well, that is left up to the slightly twisted imagination of playwright Jeffrey Hatcher (best known to Seattle audiences for his adaptation of Tuesdays with Morrie). Hatcher's keen and offbeat sense of the ridiculous thrives among the cul de sacs, manicured lawns and electric golf carts of Florida. You may or may not be a murderer yourself, but everyone will ultimately be charmed by this glorious evening of crime. Directed by veteran Seattle director and playwright Steven Dietz (award winning playwright of Lonely Planet and Private Eyes), Murderers showcases the best in Seattle acting with Sarah Rudinoff as Minka and Mark Anders as Gerald, and national talent Joan Porter Hollander as Lucy.

Performance Details: Performances of Murderers are at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday with 2:00 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sundays. There will be no performance on Thursday, October 11. Post-play discussions will be held after performances on Sunday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, October 25 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, October 28 at 2:00 p.m. There is an audio-described performance on Saturday, October 27 at 2:00 p.m. and an American Sign Language (ASL)-interpreted performance on Sunday, October 28 at 2:00 p.m.
