      Players Workshop will hold open auditions for a British mystery-thriller, Murder By The Book, written by Duncan Greenwood and Robert King, on Sun., February 5, and Mon., Feb. 6, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. at the workshop. Kent Lewis will direct this show.  

     Characterized by crisp, witty dialogue, this light-hearted and inventive thriller unfolds with a series of macabre twists, as a writer of thrillers indulges in vitriolic word duels with his estranged wife until she kills him—or does she?  As an amateur detective attempts to solve the crime before the police do, more deadly games are in store, and the tables are turned again and again for both the victim and killers.  

     There are parts available for 5 adults, 3 males and 2 females, of varying ages from twenties to sixties; however, according to Director Lewis, the ages can be “fudged a little.”  

      For more information on auditions, contact the director at 319-759-1414 or 319-753-0470.  Information is also available on PW’s Facebook page and at  

The show runs March 24-26, 30-31, and April 1-2, 2023. and is presented by arrangement with Concord Publishing. Players Workshop is a 501(c)3 organization.
