THE LADY FROM OUT OF THE PAST by Maria Viera Beatty

£3.00

Stranded somewhere in the 1940s, a stunning femme fatale in trouble seeks the help of a “lone wolf” private detective to find out who murdered her husband. The play is set in a sparsely furnished office: a desk, two chairs, with Venetian blinds covering a window on the rear wall. This comedy references various film noir plots, characters, and dialogue as well as titles of 33 films noir.
