For those who love the hard-boiled fiction of Raymond Chandler and James M. Cain and the gritty film noirs their stories inspired, a new batch of “theatre noirs” will be unveiled this Spring. In this world-premiere format, twenty-seven never-before-seen plays will pay tribute to Noir’s tough-taking private eyes and femme fatales. ¬ From the brutal sneer of Mickey Spillane’s Kiss Me Deadly to the cynical chivalry of Billy Wilder’s Double Indemnity, Noir’s poetry and violence, desire and destiny all find new life through the unpredictable staging, improvisational wit and verbal dexterity that infuse the stories of Impro Theatre. Rogue cop, doomed lover, corrupt robber baron, sadistic killer, B Girl or chanteuse — no actor knows what role he, or she, may be asked to play when stepping out to improvise.
Using only a suggestion from the audience to kick off the show, Impro Theatre tackles the hard-hitting and sensuous world of L.A. in the 1940’s and 50s – while spontaneously creating a completely original and entertaining story each performance. Impro’s funny and gifted actors use their guts and imaginations to invent character and story on the spot.
