An enjoyable play. It was a little disconcerting at first having a black guy play Peter Wimsey, but he pulls it off. A couple of fine performances, particularly Bunter & Wimsey's mother. Watching Bunter, it clicked on me that the Wimsey/Bunter...continued

Really well done. Sharp, witty writing and strong actors made this production shine. A really enjoyable experience. I laughed out loud several times. Highly recommended.

Excellent staging and set design. Great "Who Done It" mystery set in 1920s Britain with exceptional British prose and verse. Very fast paced, entertaining and funny show

Saw the first preview and wouldn't change a thing. Each actor embodied Dorothy L. Sayers's amazing characters. Lord Peter Wimsey, one of the truly great fictional characters, is hard to get right. Yet, William Anthony Sebastian Rose II captures...continued

I’ve began attending children’s performances at Lifeline Theatre when my daughter was 5 - 30 years ago. Now I find myself going drawn to the theatre weekday evenings for more adult fare. The current play, “Whose Body?” was such a fun evening of...continued

While the concept was appealing, the execution was not. The script was convoluted, possibly due to the inability to hear and/or understand some of the words. The fast-paced talking, with an accent, was often indiscernible. While a few in the...continued

The play was very funny at times and well-acted. It could do with a bit of scene editing. The play ran rather long and several scenes really didn't add much to the story.
