Every thriller needs an evildoer, and David Foley’s play Deadly Murder has more than one. In the first place, wealthy jewelry designer Camille Dargus has picked up Billy, a waiter, and brought him back to her apartment. Is Billy a boneheaded blackmailer or a masterminded manipulator? Whatever the case, he’s certainly bad, because he’s taken Camille hostage in her own apartment. There’s also Ted, the security guard that Camille’s summoned to her apartment for help. It’s not clear which side he’s on. Through verbal twists and turns, we discover there’s more to Camille than first meets the eye — the broad’s got a past.
The cat-and-mouse game these characters play is full of reversals, double crosses and even murder. Find out how it all ends at 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. January 22 and January 29. Through February 4. Theatre Suburbia, 4106 Way Out West Dr. For information, call 713‑682‑3525 or visit www.theatresuburbia.com. $14.
