Murder. Mystery. Magic. Mentalist misdirection. And maybe a couple of sharp objects moved to places they don’t belong. Heck, what the fringe do you want for 10 bucks?

As ’30s-inspired film-noir gumshoe Dirk Darrow, Aussie import Tim Motley delivers a full package of fringe-fun goods, using the loose framework of a murder-investigation yarn as the jumping off point for a fast and funny multi-disciplinary showcase that involves plenty of audience involvement.

Quick of wit and smooth in his delivery of challenging whip-fast dialogue, Motley makes a strong case for inclusion on the fest-goers’ must-see list.

— Brad Oswald

 

From the Fringe program:

Follow the trail of a killer in the world's only one-man comedy film noir magical mind-reading murder mystery! Part stand-up, part mentalist, part whodunit, part magic, part theater and all gritty 1940's nostalgia, dripping with noir. Think Boardwalk Empire meets X-Files meets Naked Gun.
