Death in High Heels by Richard Harris

Directed by Mathilde Berry

A stylish whodunnit set in a 1937 London couture house - adapted from the novel by Christianna Brand.

A big day for the staff at fashion house Christophe et Cie, as they eagerly await the decision of who will be appointed general manager of a new branch in France. Will it be the elegant Miss Doon or the longserving Miss Gregory? Perhaps senior saleswoman Irene or showroom manager Dorian will get the job. Events take a dramatic turn over lunch when one of them collapses and dies, poisoned it seems by a rival. Inspector Charlesworth has a murder enquiry on his hands. Behind the glamour and gossip of a 1930s fashion house, secrets and lies are rife and more than one person may have harboured resentment towards the victim.

All performances at Theater an der Marschnerstraße near U-Bahn Hamburger Straße (U3).

Please note that up until 24 February 2019, the underground service of the U3 is interrupted between Rathaus and Berliner Tor. However, from the city centre you can reach Berliner Tor and the U3 taking you to Hamburger Straße via the underground line U2 from Jungfernstieg or Hauptbahnhof.
