Improv Noir

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Another night, another new case…

There’s been a murder in town. Who? How? Where? That’s for you to decide!

Follow a hardboiled detective in this improvised noir murder mystery, as they bumble, bluster and blunder their way through the case, and ultimately attempt to deduce the audience’s suggestions and solve the murder. Stake out seedy dive bars and stroll the perpetually rainy streets. Meet a rogues’ gallery of mobsters and mafiosos, crooked coppers and sleazy suits.

Will our intrepid investigator crack the case and bring the perp to justice, or will the murderer successfully shift the blame and slip the noose?

This production is recommended for ages 16 and over.
