A Party to Murder - meet cast member Damian John Legacy

Tell us about your character in A Party to Murder.
Willy is a boisterous former football player, however his life changed after a car accident left him wheelchair bound.  Despite his hot temper flaring up every now and then, he is mostly concerned with telling off-color jokes and using situational humor to make sure the others do not take themselves, nor their situation so gravely...

What were some of the challenges you faced while working on this show?
Working with and getting accustomed to the wheelchair was a notable challenge for me.  Additionally, following the many twists and turns presented by the playwright also created the challenge of representing Willy's authentic motivations and emotions as he instigates and responds to various situations that arise.

What do you hope the audience takes away from the show?
My hope for our audiences is that just as they think they know how the story ends, we throw another plot twist to throw them off even more.  What better way to start Halloween season than by watching a "whodunit" full of misdirections on top of misdirections?!
