In this farce aimed at film noir movies, Neil Down and Stan Up run the Up and Down Detective Agency in a “bustling metropolis".

The year is 1938 and they’re about to take on one of their most puzzling cases. Beautiful (and loaded) blonde Barb Wire hires the detectives to find her missing sister, Case Worker. She thinks there may be foul play involved and Case’s husband, Hardy Worker, is a prime suspect.Before long, the detectives are knee-deep in a case that involves kidnapping and stolen diamonds. But who can they believe and will Down’s past catch up with him?

Our all-volunteer group (a non profit organization) operates the beautiful Red Barn Theatre in the pastoral Pennsylvania countryside on Route 288 between Ellwood City and Zelienople. The Red Barn Players acquired the property in 2010 after having rented the barn for more than 50 years, and are in the midst of a capital campaign to pay off the mortgage on the property and make improvements to the theatre.
