Welcome to Minneapolis in the 1930s, a city brimming with gangsters, bootleggers, crooked cops and tough-talking dames. When the well-to-do proprietor of a successful brewing company is kidnapped, it sets in motion a chain of events that may end in murder ... or a well-made martini. Prints marks Torch Theater's first original script production. It combines the moody atmosphere of those classic fast-talking detective films of the golden age of cinema with modern storytelling and a hint of playful nostalgia. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "a big and very enjoyable play full of chewy intellectual questions... Director John Heimbuch understands this play and its setting well... Vaughn digs into [his] meaty role with an actor's talons and claws. He creates a Kynaston of effete and supreme arrogance... He and Froiland bristle with realism as Othello and Desdemona." --<em>Star Tribune</em>
- "Walking Shadow Theatre Company is offering a smart local premiere of this tale, which, though set in the early 1600s, has plenty to say to contemporary audiences about gender roles, power and the passions that drive us... Wade A. Vaughn deftly trods a fine line between the actor who plays women with masterful affectation and the off-stage man whose life is significantly more nuanced." --<em>Pioneer Press</em>
