“Like a ripped up newspaper, we were only getting half the story…”

Directed by Corey Bradberry and written by Greg Garrison, with original music by Paul Sottnik, the audio play follows Detective Stainless Steel as she trains a new partner facing down deadly criminals while managing a client she’ll never forget: her ex-wife. From racetracks to rooftops, car chases to funerals, A MATTER OF RED HERRINGS is about identity, forgiveness, and the comedy of courage told with its tongue firmly holstered in its cheek. Starring Amy Gorelow and Julian ‘joolz’ Stroop as the two detectives, this laugh out loud comedy utilizes the gags and thrills of any Golden Age radio play… with the technology of the 21st century.

A MATTER OF RED HERRINGS is performed entirely without visuals and tells the story combining the written word, the human voice, rich soundscapes, and thrilling original music. In this 80-minute audio adventure, A Theater in the Dark cooks in signature style while painting a hilariously deranged love letter to detectives, criminals, ghosts, and a very anachronistic 1920s Chicago.
