Mainline Theatre and LaSalle College present a performance written and directed by Concordia University graduate student Michael Belcher, with art direction by LaSalle College student Karen Firth.
Set in California in the years following the end of WWII, Between Night and Day tells the story of actress Rose Pierce whose relative emancipation during the war years poses a threat to her shellshocked husband and their once blissful marriage.
Presented from multiple perspectives - the vibrant color of Rose's burgeoning love for a handsome waiter and the stark blacks and whites of the film noir world in which she works - Between Night and Day takes the audience from the crumbling domesticity of Rose's home to the shady docks and smoky bars of a crime kingpin. Rose, split between the dictates of society and the yearnings of her own heart, must find a way to navigate the heartbreaking and heart-pumping travails of her dueling existence and escape her past - or die trying.
Tipping its large-brimmed hat to such classics as Mildred Pierce, The Lady from Shanghai, and The Big Sleep, Between Night and Day is a dual-barreled mix of romance and suspense, stunning costumes and imaginative sets that will leave the audience rooting for both Rose and her femme fatale alter ego until the last gun shot is fired.
