Private eyes, a play, J City theater

J CITY Theater announces the opening of their new production: Private Eyes by
Steven Dietz.

Private Eyes is a “relationship thriller” - a comedy of suspicion in which
nothing is quite what it seems.  Matthew’s wife is having an affair with Adrian,
a British theater director.  Or perhaps the affair is part of the play being
rehearsed.  Or perhaps Matthew has imagined all of it simply to have something
to report to Frank, his therapist.  The audience bares witness to the
characters’ delicious deceptions and are ultimately the detectives - the real
private eyes, who search for clues to Dietz’s laugh out loud comedy of surprise
and misdirection. 

With dialogue that snaps and crackles with biting humor, Dietz explores
characters who continually try to tell the truth - but in the end learn the
value of “the comforting white lie”.   Secrecy and deception hide the twin
fevers of passion and suspicion.  To borrow a phrase, Private Eyes is a “riddle
wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma”.
