🩸The plot…

It is 1923 and Norwich, once known as the Rose of New England, has become a thorn in the side of Prohibition Bureau boss Dan ‘The Man’ Cappuccino. Norwich’s Assembly House has been targeted by Mob Boss ‘Fat Stan’, who is now running it as an illegal after-hours Speakeasy.

You are invited to attend one of Stan’s ‘parties’. Do you dare go? Rival gang members might show up and will you dodge a police raid? What is the connection between Dan and Stan - each other’s nemesis; so different, yet oddly similar… Even dancing girls are not always what they seem!

Join us for a guaranteed riotously killer evening – 1920s dress and bad American accents encouraged but certainly not compulsory!

Please be advised that there will be a loud bang during the performance.
