Noir is the New Black: A Lighter Shade of Noir

A Lighter Shade of Noir
Written by Lindsay Price

In A Lighter Shade of Noir by Patrick Derksen, Trent Trowel is your typical gumshoe. Searching the mean streets for crimes to solve and dames to fall for. He joins some of the world’s most famous detectives at the International PD gala. There’s Shirley Holmes, Jean Louie Phillip Eustache… and Aunt Beatrice.

But is this just an innocent gala? Will the world’s most dastardly villains foil them with a fiendish master plan? Will Aunt Beatrice ever get an English muffin? Everything is not what it seems.

A fabulously funny and high styling take on film noir – it’s a lighter shade of noir after all!

Led by director, Madeline Kuns, the talented drama team at Central Valley Christian Schools successfully mastered this comedic take on the film noir genre. Great fun and great reviews!

I was the director of Central Valley Christian’s production of A Lighter Shade of Noir this year. We had a blast! What a fun script!
