A Noir Romantic Comedy by Michael Hollinger

Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices.  It’s 1952:  America’s on the verge of the H-bomb, I Love Lucy is on TV, Senator Joe McCarthy’s daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor – or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana.  A blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot! The Philadelphia Inquirer called the play “Exceedingly funny” while the Main Line Times calls it “Hilarious. A valentine celebrating love and marriage.  A fun, engaging, farcical romp with a cleverly complex plot and a loving heart.”  

What a perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day this season!
