We may be back for year three, but the show is always brand new! Experience the intrigue, mystery and hilarity as we use the most classic themes of noir storytelling to a create a wholly improvised full-length feature show. So who dies and which shady character did it? With a brand new cast and crew, new improvised roles, and a fantastic audience - no mystery will ever be the same. Set right in the gritty dark underworld of crime and intrigue from the 1940's - this premiere show will be a night to remember. One cast, two acts, all driven by one thing: your suggestion.
