Earth & Sky

Earth & Sky

By Douglas Post

Directed by Faith Jessel

May 13 – Jun 4

 

Sara McKeon has her head in the clouds, living in the safe, rarefied world of libraries and poetry readings. Then her lover is found dead in an alley and it appears that he may have been involved in several nefarious activities.

Unable to believe that the man she gave her heart to was a killer, and outraged that the police seemed to have closed the book on the case, Sara begins her own investigation of the crime and is led deeper and deeper through the urban labyrinth into Chicago’s underworld.

She may be naive, but she’s also whip smart. Though Sara’s inquisitiveness and sense of justice might just lead her down a road from which she’ll never return.

In true film noir style, infused with suspense, thrills and startling wit, Earth and Sky will leave you breathless. Will you be able to put the pieces of this peculiar puzzle together before the end of the night?

“Earth and Sky is a fantastic production full of red herrings, gangsters, smoking guns, sly humour and gutsy females that makes for a very entertaining couple of hours.”
