Tickets and information
Two of the premier practitioners of full-length improvised plays pay tribute to the Godfathers of California Noir: Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler in a two night-festival of unscripted noir.
Impro Theatre from Los Angeles reunites with the company that spawned it, BATS Improv, for a split-bill of dames, detectives and double-crosses. Friday night they face off as The San Francisco team fashions a spontaneous homage to Hammett and L.A. improvises in the style of Chandler. Both companies will join forces Saturday night for an improvised noir musical created and directed by BATS musical director Joshua Raoul Brody.
