Written by Fred Carmi-
chael and directed by Brett
Duer, “All the Better to Kill
You With” is not just another
love triangle that causes an-
other murder. This is a classic
whodunit with the exciting
twist of the audience not only
getting to see “who done it”
but also how the whole thing
is planned and carried out.
Audiences see the clev-
er interweaving of truth and
falsehood that produces a
tapestry of tension and thrills
while meticulously blending
mystery and humor. The care-
fully planned deception almost
works until truth rears its head
and the brilliant structure of
cunning topples to the ground.
The question is not necessarily
“whodunit,” so to speak, but
rather will the murderer be
found out. The result is high
tension and good dramatic ex-

citement along with brilliant
comic relief.
This production not only
brings veteran TAPA directors
Richard Coon, Chris Chiola
and Robert Buckingham back
on the stage as actors, but also
offers a chance for ¿rst-timers
as well. TAPA veteran Brett
Duer is at the director helm for
the ¿rst time.
“After performing at TAPA
for several years, I am excited
to get into the director’s chair,”
Duer said. “This play has a lot
of dark notes to it with a rem-
iniscent feel of TAPA’s 2012
production ‘Wait Until Dark.’
I wanted to capture another
side of the 1960s in regards
to style and the gender roles
of that era; it wasn’t all peace
and love.

this year in TAPA’s “Dead
Ringer” and is playing Erica
Travers, Doug’s charming and
trusting wife. However, the
newlywed couple is not with-
out their own secrets and lies.
Robert Buckingham plays
Russell Livingston, the suave
and handsome ex-boyfriend
of Erica, who is suspected of
trying to rekindle the old ro-
mance.
Holly
Dickson
plays
Doug’s sister Paula, who
wants to escape her checkered
past but seems to always ¿nd
herself stuck in a downward
spiral.
Rounding out the cast
are Chief Inspector Hender-
son, played by TAPA veter-
an Richard Coon, and Ser-
geant Roger Parkins, played
by Garrick Gordon. While
the Chief Inspector is the
straight-faced and straight-
laced law enforcement veter-
an, Sergeant Parkins is on his
¿rst murder case and looks
on with a childlike amaze-
ment and enthusiasm. Their
Abbott-and-Costello-like
chemistry is both intense and
hilarious.

able through Diamond Art
Jewelers located at 307 Main
St.; call 503-842-7940 for res-
ervations. Tickets are $15 for
adults and $10 for students

“I am very excited to have
so many talented actors in one
production,” Duer continued.
“The cast members are all
hard-working actors and bring
their own unique talents to the
team. They have great chemis-
try on stage which makes this
production rich in character
and storytelling.”
Anita O’Hagan is a new-
comer to TAPA and plays the
well-intentioned and often
outspoken Evelyn Hopkins.
“Being in a play has been
on my bucket list for years,”
O’Hagan said. “I was at the
right place at the right time
and was able to audition. Nev-
er in a million years would I
have thought I would actually
receive a part. I am having a
blast and love every single
minute of it, plus I can now
cross this off my bucket list.”

TAPA Board President Chris
Chiola, who plays the wildly
cunning Doug Travers. Rikki
Reid made her acting debut
