Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: When the up-and-coming new British director for the Catskills Shakespeare Theater Company's production of "Much Ado About Nothing" is found dead, a presumed suicide, costume designer Charlotte Fairfax investigates.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 February #1
    Charlotte Fairfax, costume designer and general factotum for a small Shakespeare company based at a classic Catskill Mountains hotel, teams up with the company's board president, Paula Van Dusen, to ensure that the fall production of Much Ado about Nothing is a success. But first they must endure the arrival of the star, aging British diva Audrey Ashley, and her dour manager and sister; the abrupt departure of the director, who had insisted on Ashley's casting; and the arrival—and subsequent death—of the replacement director, Edmund Albright, whom Ashley had requested. In his few short days as director, Albright had alienated almost everyone by setting the play in upstate New York in the post–Civil War era. Charlotte and Paula first need to convince the local police that Albright's death was not a suicide, and then they need to winnow down the list of suspects—and protect themselves. In this third in the series, Duncan brings her delightful characterizations, intelligent plotting, and always-interesting theatrical frame to the Catskills. It all adds up to another opening-night success. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
