    Sock Puppet Fetish Noir is an absurdist twist on the film noir detective genre, and offers great opportunity for performers with character, physical, and visual humor. This show ain't playin' footsies, it's a real kick.

    This short is the kind of play that I really wish I could see live. The physicality of the sock puppets adds an extra layer to the comedy, which is already rich and abundant! What a silly, silly play with a perfect ending. I love it!

    Though SOCK PUPPET FETISH NOIR is grandly silly, and so much fun as farcical footsie noir - it also comes out of, I'm guessing, the universal aversion we all have for losing socks. And what is comedy when it doesn't come from real pain? (A friend accuses laundry driers of eating her socks because she would never lose one.) The detective genre banter between Jane and "Darrell" would be amazing fun to see performed. Perfect ending, and I love Melvin's "Do the thing" sign. I'm laughing now just thinking about it.
