About the show

Film noir for the stage, a world of rapid-fire dialogue, smoking guns, and femmes fatale. More…

Ben Farrell, Private Investigator, discovers that his cases are appearing on the pages of a popular pulp serial… but the crimes are being penned before they happen in real life. The mystery grows darker still when Farrell reads his own death in the prophetic pages.
