Canberra Unscripted: Femme Noir

Nobody gets what he wants, but everybody gets what’s coming to him. 

Locking up the office before heading into the rain-slicked city streets, the private investigator lights a cigarette. The flame flickers beneath her fedora, revealing a smile as she nods toward the homme fatale standing in the shadows.

Nothing’s as it seems in this gender-swap makeover of the classic film-noir genre.

Come for a night of intrigue, deception, dubious morality, and high sexual tension in this unscripted show where no one gets what he wants and everyone gets what’s coming to him.

Directed by Heidi Silberman.

Femme Noir is part of the Canberra Unscripted festival (19–22 September).
