Private Eyes

Matthew's wife, Lisa, is having an affair with a British director... Or is she? Perhaps the affair is actually part of the play they are rehearsing... Or perhaps it's all in Matthew's head...

Thankfully, Matthew's therapist helps the audience by offering the real truth of the situation. Or maybe he's just another actor in another play. At least, in the end, a waitress and/or wife and/or private eye named Cory brings the play to a decisive, clear conclusion...maybe.

In Private Eyes, a "comedy of suspicion" about trust and deception, these five characters inhabit multiple layers of a single, often conflicting, and absurd story. Through a whirlwind of scenes and situations, the audience members act as detectives, trying to figure out what is real and what is not.


"The final moments of the play are poignantly rendered and stunningly stirring. With Private Eyes, the QC Theatre Workshop continues toward what I expect to be a long-running streak of professional, polished productions."
- Thom White, River Cities' Reader

"It's something I've never seen in any theatrical production,
something I'll remember for years,
and something I'm sure will surprise patrons."
- David Burke, Quad-City Times

"Private Eyes strongly solidifies the Workshop as
a dependable cultural force for intelligent, edgy, contemporary theatre...
the vision, wit, and energy that QC Theatre Workshop employs to pull it off are
truly a spectacular sight to behold."
- Jonathan Turner, The Dispatch-Argus
