Where Were You When You Were Stolen

By Ron Fisher and John Sable

Directed by John Sable

Chester Head is a 1940s style detective stuck in the 21st century. He doesn't understand new-fangled crimes like identity theft. When "Sweet" Candy Kane hires Chester to solve the mystery of her stolen identity, he has to learn fast. The unforgiving alleys of Clear Lake City are no place to learn on the job.

Where Were You When You Were Stolen, Broom Street Theater’s latest production, is a parody of the film noir genre complete with noir-styled lighting and a hero who never fails to miss an opportunity for a soliloquy. The play is Broom Street Theater's 40th anniversary production. It replaces the previously announced Lester and the Trailer Trash.

Additional events will mark the 40th anniversary, including a date night on Sunday, May 3 at 6:00 p.m., where the theater will project a DVD of Joel Gersmann’s 1997 play, Di, Princess, Di. A $5 donation is requested. Also, both the Madison City Council and the Dane County Board are set to vote to declare a Broom Street Theater Day to be celebrated on Saturday, May 9, the day of the anniversary celebration at the theater. That event will be from noon to 4:00 p.m.

The production has some suggestive language but is appropriate for teens.
