“To Catch a Cheat” is an adult comedy in which Philip Dietz , a private investigator, runs a special service in which, for a hefty fee, he seduces would-be adulteresses for his clients to enable them to secure a better deal in their divorce settlement. All goes well for Philip until a few scorned women plot for their revenge.

The cast includes Eric Lutz, Deborah Buck, Jeff Ginsberg, Linda C. Griffiths, Brink Powell, Courtney McCready and Andrew Warnock.

An Archbald resident, Walsh has been directing plays at Providence Playhouse in Scranton for nearly 20 years. Most recently, he directed “The Prisoner of Second Ave.” Among his other credits are “Barefoot in the Park,” “Dial ‘M’ for Murder,” “Wait Until Dark,” “Seniors of the Sahara” and “A little Murder on the Side.” He also wrote the script for “A Tale of Two Cities,” which he co-directed with Lou Bisignani. He acted in many plays with Actors Circle and other local theaters.
