NOIR is a world premiere by Stan Werse, and directed by Marc Geller.
Clay Holden has his first big chance as a detective ... but this is one case that he may not want to solve. "Noir" is a classic morality tale of loyalty and betrayal set amongst The Shadows and back alleys of 1950's New York City.
NJ Rep is looking for four, strong actors who really understand the snappy, dead pan, Film Noir style for the roles of:
CLAY HOLDEN: 25 to 30. Off beat, edgy. A young and idealistic, newly-minted police detective. Sure of what's right and sure of what's wrong.
NORBERT GRIMES: 50 to 60. Thin with beady eyes. Cynical, opinionated and tough.
McQUE: 40 to 50. Tall. A big man with muscles turning to fat. Comes off as affable and good-natured. Plays dumb, but isn't. The precinct's resident enforcer.
HELEN LYDECKER: 30 - 35. The classic Noir femme fatale. Beautiful, smart and rich. But her gorgeous face has a patina of sadness. She knows what she wants and she gets it. The ability to sing is helpful.
