Right Back With Another Drama Poster

Theater posters should tell more than they say. Just finished another promotional poster for Bethesda's fall drama We'll Be Right Back After This Murder. Written by Pat Cook, this "topsy-turvy comedy where everyone suspects everyone" will leave you guessing right to the very end.

With plenty of over the top characters and silly situations, this show should make for a fun evening. Performance dates are Friday and Saturday, October 23 & 24. The show begins at 7pm. Ticket prices are $10 ($8 for students and senior citizens) and includes dessert and a drink. There will also be a silent dessert auction. For more information or to reserve tickets, please call 317-858-2820.

As a newer stage show, this murder mystery/comedy does not sell itself like a Broadway musical. But the phrasing in the title implies a television slogan and the show does utilize a reporter and camera crew. So I decided to use an old style TV set to frame the poster information. Hopefully most people will remember what television sets looked like before the digital revolution.

In addition to designing the poster, I will be dressing the set and hanging lights.
