Phoenix Stage Company (PSC), proudly presents “Kill Me
Deadly” by Bill Robens beginning March 16th for seven performances.

Charlie Nickels has a hard life as a gumshoe in the seedy underbelly
of Los Angeles, and things are only made harder by the murder of a
client and the theft of her 300 karat diamond.

With the help of his wise-cracking secretary, Ida, Charlie seeks out
the many suspects: smarmy bookworm Clive, equestrian beauty Veronica,
snooty butler Wilson, sensitive muscle Louie, and mob boss Bugsy
Siegel. At the center of the case is femme fatale Mona, a nightclub
singer who captures Charlie’s affections…and suspicions. Packed with
romance, intrigue, and murder, this detective noir is a smart parody
that will keep you guessing until the end.

“Kill Me, Deadly” is directed by Ed Bassett.  The production features
Marsha Gaylord, Heather Graham, Alana Kingsley, Joshua Lusczak, Mark
E. Rees, Lori Richnavsky, Rob Richnvsky, Leland M. Schick, Emily
Simmons, Daniel R. Willey.
