The Stage Coach Players present "Red Herring" running three weekends in July. Directed by Bernie Schuneman with stage manager Jan Booth, the play spoofs Red Scare era politics and culture, sending up everything from the H-bomb to Joseph McCarthy's daughter. It uses the standard cliches of the noir detective story – a hard-boiled, hard-drinking detective, down on his luck; a sadder-but-wiser love interest, beautiful but hard-bitten; a fiendish criminal; and an indifferent bureaucratic police force.
Showtimes are July 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and July 21 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $12.
