The Sunol Repertory
Presents its 2015-- 34th Season Production of
How the Other Half Dies By Eddie McPherson
Directed by Klay Kunkel & Lea Blevins
Climbing the social ladder in the 50s is no laughing matter
– unless you are in the audience!
In a desperate attempt to become a member of Harriet Hammer’s posh country club, Sybil Chasteen invites Ms. Hammer to a formal dinner party on the same day that she discovers a dead body in the trunk of her new car. While Sybil waits impatiently for the authorities, the corpse, nicknamed Mr. X, sits propped up on her sofa as the list of murder suspects grows. The police, distracted by a few other cases, finally arrive only to find Sybil’s life spiraling recklessly out of control in this door-slamming, phone ringing, ridiculously fun murder-mystery parody that includes backstage rim shots, witty one-liners and a backyard wedding.

The Sunol Repertory Theatre was
founded in 1982 by Tom and Vicki Harland to provide quality
entertainment, establish a community tradition, and create
an opportunity to raise funds to benefit the educational
of the students at Sunol Glen School, which receives the profit
from each year's show. After the 2014 season, the Sunol
Theatre donated $7000. Over its 33 year history, SRT has donated
over $130,000 to the School.
