SUMMARY

Following the success of 'Attack of the 50 Foot Woman’, Croon Productions latest show, 'NOIR: A Dick Privet Mystery', a puppet theatre pastiche of film noir. NOIR is based on classic black and white movies. Rod marionettes inhabit the city streets of a big American city in the late 1940s.

Mist and steam rise from the street close to a nightclub where Lola Meme is a singer. Dick Privet stares through his office window out onto the city toward the deserted train station waiting for his next case. Wealthy business man Mr Richman hires hard-boiled private detective Dick Privet to find a missing person. Dick soon discovers that he’s not the only one hunting for Jonny Volent, he sure is a popular guy, but there's more to the case than first meets the eye. Dick soon becomes embroiled with femme fatale, Lola Me-Me as the two of them witness a murder and try to out-fox the heavies, and then there is the mysterious man calling himself The Collector on their tail.

Why does everyone want to find Jonny?

What has The Collector paid for?

Will Dick get answers? Results? Corpses? A date with Lola?

A Stylish, dark, funny puppet theatre pastiche of classic film noir. Presented in black and white, with expressionistic angles and an art deco aesthetic. Made for grown-ups but suitable for over 7yrs.
