Noir's lady in red

Manchester’s Vertigo Theatre Productions is premièring its hit play Noir online this December.

Rather than just showing a copy of the original try-out production from 2017, Vertigo and the cast and crew will film a brand new production this November at The Empty Space Theatre.

Noir transports audiences to the black and white movies of the '30s, '40s and '50s. Veronica Smart is a beautiful 39-year-old woman who always wanted to be a star and has grown tired of marriage. Meeting a group of teenagers at the local school where she works sets in motion a plan that will include seduction, passion, lies, manipulation and murder.

Cameras roll this November and it will then be available to stream at 7:30PM on Saturday December 19 and Sunday December 20. NHS nurses can see it for free.
