Gadfly Theatre Productions to Present GIRL GUMSHOE AND DETECTIVE DAD, 10/17-26
by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2014

A noir parody about growing up and moving forward by local playwright Eli Effinger-Weintraub. Gina views moving day as a flag on the shores of maturity and independence. Too bad her father, Troy, makes immaturity and dependence so exciting. While Gina's mother Irene and girlfriend Sarita do the bulk of the work, Troy and Gina indulge in one last round of Girl Gumshoe and Detective Dad, a game from Gina's childhood. But when Detective Dad thinks he's uncovered a murder, the game takes a turn that threatens relationships, living arrangements, and sanity and forces Gina to choose between security and adventure, past and future. Girl Gumshoe and Detective Dad is a comedy that proves it's never too late to grow up--or to avoid growing up at all costs. Girl Gumshoe will be produced at the People's Center Theatre on the West Bank of Minneapolis, and runs October 17th-26th. (more...)
