“…White has accomplished the extraordinary: He has written a mystery play unlike any other.” – Peter Filichia, The New Jersey Star-Ledger
“David Lee White, and director, Adam Immerwahr, have not only created a fast-moving, laugh-outloud howler, but also delivered a nifty 90-minute entertainment that gives us every reason to suspect that “Slippery as Sin” will have a prolonged life after this production closes. How nice for those characters that have to end up dead.” – Simon Saltzman, US 1
“…as successful and satisfying a variation as one could ever hope to see of the satiric stage thrillers which evoke the ever palpable jolts of early film classics, such as those involving a cocaine-addicted English detective and his biographer, haunted houses, charlatans, vampires, and other things that go bump in the night… I would not be surprised if Slippery as Sin goes on to become a popular, widely produced staple of the American stage. It is certainly worthy.” – Bob Rendell, Talkin’ Broadway
Slippery as Sin
An “old dark house” mystery about our war on facts. It’s 1931 and Dorrington, America’s most brilliant detective, is trapped on an island with some of the country’s most elite socialites. As the evening wears on and backstabbing plots are revealed, Dorrington becomes convinced that the house is under siege by Diabolicus – a master criminal that no one has ever seen, Dorrington realizes that he must do whatever it takes to convince the others that Diabolicus is responsible – even if he doesn’t even exist.
