Set in a bygone era of cheap dames and dirty dicks, this noir mystery is one you chumps won’t want to miss! Featuring a smooth blend of “awe inspiring acrobatics” (The Age), shaken with “Charlie Chaplin-esque slapstick gold” (Timeout), a dash of burlesque and some high-flying aerial, this farcical cocktail makes for a delicious night out.

“10/10...for originality, execution and pure's just so darned clever” - Weekend Notes

“The Dumtectives in Cirque Noir is a...hilarious, always-spectacular romp featuring three of Australia’s greatest clowns in a show that makes a mockery of Chandler and a hero of Buster Keaton." - Theatre Travels
