alrite guys, if you want to take a break from revision, this is the one to take.
Freshblood Theatre presents 'Noir Way Out', a new play by Tom Steward.
A gang of dejected misfits and small-time hoods wander aimlessly through a pop culture universe, haunting by repressed pasts and unable to escape their fates. In a gloriously bloody pantomime, toy guns start to smoke, fantasies disintegrate into booze and lies and the undertaker stays in business. Death is an inevitable part of life…and a great word to put in titles!
'Noir Way Out' is a theatrical pastiche of pulp cinema and popular culture drawing on film noir, horror and science-fiction. A suspense thriller shot through with knowing self-reference. Light but sinister, unreal but potent, clever but cruel. An experience like no other. 'Noir Way Out' will be performed on the 20th, 21st and 22nd of May, in the Cooler, at 2pm. Price £3.50 Freshblood members, £4 non-members.
it's got a little bit of everything you'd expect from a classic noir – double-crossing, intrigue and paranoia… as well as a little bit extra in the shape of drug addiction, elvis, dysfunctional psychotherapists and crazed movie fanatics; not to mention BLOOD-DRENCHED MASSACRE. so come along..!
