The "madcap comedy thriller" Drop Dead Perfect returns to off-Broadway this Summer and begins previews at the Theatre at St. Clement's on 19 August 2015, before an official opening on 23 August, and a limited run through to 11 October 2015.

Written by Erasmus Finn and directed by Joe Brancato and recommended for adults only, Drop Dead Perfect follows "Idris Seabright, a wealthy, eccentric mistress of a Key West cottage who runs her estate with a zany flair. When her beloved ward Vivien decides to abandon the Florida Keys to pursue art in Greenwich Village and Idris' lawyer becomes alarmingly interested in her investments, Idris' life begins its outrageous downward spiral. After she receives a visit from a mysterious stranger bearing an undeniable resemblance to her long-lost love, she becomes unhinged and her life erupts into over-the-top comic mayhem."

The cast includes Everett Quinton (Idris Seabright), Jason Cruz (Ricardo), Jason Edward Cook (Vivien), and Timothy C. Goodwin.

The creative team features choreography by Lorna Ventura, scenic design by James J. Fenton, lighting design by Ed McCarthy, costume design by Charlotte Palmer-Lane and sound design by William Neal.

Drop Dead Perfect is produced off-Broadway by Penguin Rep Theatre, Morton Wolkowitz, Barbara Freitag and Jamie deRoy.
