High Park Noir – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

From press release

Condo development in High Park will leave its furry inhabitants homeless. If he can get sober, raccoon Detective Dick will expose corruption and save High Park. Will Dick’s dark past and Officer Pussy’s tail get in his way? A trust-fund puppy and burlesque bat complicate matters in this waggish tale for adults only!

Simply Twisted Productions was created by three old friends who graduated from Dawson College’s DOME Theatre Program in Montreal. This will be their first time working all together since they graduated from theatre school 15 years ago! Simply Twisted Productions is a diverse company with female, gay and indigenous representation.

“We’ll always have High Park”…or will we? Find out in this film noir inspired comedy for mature audiences.
