Chicago, 1950. One overcast morning, Detectives Thompson and Hartman are called in to investigate a grisly murder. One optimistic but inexperienced, one tough but jaded, together they may still be not quite competent enough to sort this whole thing out.

Full of fun, friction, fanfare, femmes fatale and other such alliterations, The Detective’s Handbook is a new musical comedy, combining jazz and spoken word in an exciting and hilarious farce noire*.

*farce noire is in fact the French for a blood-based poultry stuffing.
