Leftend Productions Inaugural Production A SHOT IN THE DARK By Harry Kurnitz & Directed by Kris Kontour Runs March 1st-31st at The Den's Upstairs Theatre

keftLeftend Productions is excited to present for their first production Harry Kurnitz’s adaptation of Marcel Achard’s “L’Idiot” A SHOT IN THE DARK. Murder, mystery, and confusion! Come see the stage version that inspired a film by the same name.  Starting Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights March 1 2013 7:30pm and closing March 31, 2013 in The Den Theatre’s upstairs black box theater, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Wicker Park. Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com

A Shot in the Dark is a three act comedy where Josefa Lantenany (Kari Warfield) a good hearted and guileless child of nature is hauled in on a charge of murder, having been found next to her dead lover, unconscious, nude, and holding the murder weapon.   French Magistrate Paul Sevigne (Abbas Salem), prepared for an easy open-and-shut case, becomes bewildered by Josefa’s bubbling babbling about “everything under the sun” and declares, to the threat of his judicial neck, that she must be innocent.  Sevigne must now reload his investigation narrowing the wealthy Benjamin Beaurevers (Rob Lynch) who cannot speak simply, and his wife Dominique, a direct descendant of Attila the Hun (Lyn Scott).  Paul sifts through the madness, finds the right culprit, and wins the opportunity for more than just keeping his job.

The production team for A SHOT IN THE DARK: Director, producer Kris Kontour, Set design Blake Paine, Costume design Aris Bordo, Stage management Krista Ulbricht.

Cast includes: Abbas Salem, Evan Henderson, Justin Vidovic, Annie Hogan, Kari Warefield, Lyn Scott, and Rob Lynch.

About Leftend Productions

Leftend Productions is a new theater production company that is dedicated to producing theater that explores the human world through humor.  With our productions we want you to come relax, let the cares of the world slip away, and let us entertain you with comedy well done. We want to push your funny bone, not the one on your elbow.

Leftend is the idea of Kris Kontour who grew up watching his patriarchal grandfather leave behind the cares of his busy life as a Civil Engineer, business owner, and family man and immerse himself into the great comedic works of Laurel and Hardy, Abbot and Costello, and Mel Brooks, and of course Kris was sitting right there with him. Kris has a desire to bring that same release to people with every show that he produces.
