Castle Hill Players’ next production ‘Earth and Sky’ by Douglas Post and directed by Faith Jessel is for fans of the classic, hardboiled crime prose of James M. Cain, Raymond Chandler, and Dashiell Hammett.

Infused with suspense, thrills and startling wit, this award-winning noir mystery play highlights the shadowy, gritty underlife of Chicago and that infamous city’s corrupt and often murderous ways. It is a haunting mystery, infused with humour, intrigue and poetry.

Earth and Sky

From the opening scenes, the play’s heroine, Sara McKeon, (played by Kate Jirelle) is thrust into a confusing world of contradictions and danger. She confronts it steadfastly in her naive search for the truth surrounding the brutal murder of her lover, David (Jason Spindlow).

Director, Faith Jessel has peppered the script with music and movement. It has, she says a distinct noir style reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood. “What marks ‘Earth and Sky’ as an exceptional thriller is its shifting timelines and dreamlike atmosphere. It is a story that will keep you guessing, speculating and intrigued until the last moments of the closing scene!”
