Ensemble Stage City of a  Dreadful Night

City of a Dreadful Night

July 21-30

Steeped in the atmosphere of black and white film noir movies from the 40’s, this play is not a parody of those movies but rather a deep immersion in the feel of them. We don’t want to give too much away regarding this twisting, turning piece of theatre. However, we will say the show is layered in suspense and mystery, and is rich in nostalgic atmosphere.
