The audience acts as detective for Steven Dietz' comedy thriller, Private Eyes, having its world premiere through June 8 at Arizona Theatre Company.
The production will play through May 18 at the Temple of Music and Art in Tucson, then move to the Herberger Theatre in Phoenix May 24 to June 8.
In the play an actress seems to be having an affair with her director. The actress' jealous husband enlists the aid of a therapist and a private detective to discover whether the affair is real, or just part of a very intense play they are rehearsing.
Dietz has written about the white supremacist movement in God's Country, about the supernatural in ATC's Dracula last season, and adapted Shusaku Endo's novel Silence. Other works include Lonely Planet and Handing Down the Names.
