Private Eyes
By Steven Dietz

Is Matthew’s wife, Lisa, having an affair with a British director, Adrian? Or is it only part of a play they’re rehearsing? Then again, is Matthew just inventing stuff to report to Frank, his therapist?  Facing questions like these, everyone in the audience becomes a detective in this hilarious thriller about love, lust, and the power of deception.  “Dietz’s spiraling structure and breathless pacing provide . . . an oxygen rush. . . [His] mastery of playmaking . . . is cause for kudos”The Village Voice
Gannett Theater
