Frog in Hand's newest site-specific show, "Noir" puts a supernatural spin on a timeless classic. This sensational production brings film noir to life. The 2023 premiere was held at Stonehooker Brewing Company in Mississauga, immersing audiences in the ambiance of the brewing hall. 


This production premiered with three unique casts, so a different group of artists interpreted the classic archetypes of femme fatale, detective, cop and criminal each night.
