The Saturday Experiment: Improvised Noir

Join the players of The Big HOO-HAA! Melbourne as they take a step back in time to a smoke-filled
world of jazz, glamour, crime and passion.

Welcome to Improvised Noir. Each Saturday in March, a new crime shakes the underbelly of the city.

Luckily, our hapless – and deeply flawed – detective is on the case, ready to untangle a sordid web of crime and passion. Wealthy widows, corrupt politicians and shady criminals linger at every turn. Who can you trust when everyone has a motive?

One thing’s for certain: nothing’ll go according to plan, especially when there ain’t no script! Backed
by larger-than-life characters and a cool-jazz soundtrack, this improvised detective noir is a show like no other.

'The cast is made up with some of Melbourne’s best acting and comedic talent… it is a night of
outlandish, ridiculous fun.' – Theatre People
