Legendary drama instructor James Dunn is back this semester directing a large ensemble cast of characters in Sidney Kingsley’s Detective Story. Expect to be captivated and explore the complex world of Kingsley’s hard-nosed detective Jim McLeod.

The Grand Daddy of modern TV Cop shows, DETECTIVE STORY is the script upon which the 1951 Oscar and Golden Globe-winning film starring Kirk Douglas and Lee Grant was based. Set in a frenetic New York City police station, this “play noir” takes us through a single day in the workings of the precinct – and what a day it is! Every manner of petty criminal, tough cop and eccentric street character is wound into this gritty story that is guaranteed to keep you spellbound until the dramatic climax.

Good News! Circle Drive has re-opened so there is convenient parking there as well as in Parking Lot 2 (across Sir Francis Drake Blvd.) and Parking Lot 17 (at the corner of Laurel and Sir Francis Drake Blvd.).
