George is on the hunt for the man who is seducing his wife Ruth, a lecturer in film noir at the university.

Alison, an adult chat-line operator, tells her psychiatrist a dream that she was shot in the woods by her father, Howard, whom the Pentecostal preacher Reverend Lang suspects of stealing £20,000 from the church accounts.

When Morris, Ruth's seducer, turns up as a waiter in a Chinese restaurant, things take a sinister turn for the worse.

Noir is a dark comedy of desire, dreams and coincidental disappearances. It was co-produced by Live Theatre and Northern Stage Ensemble and premiered at Newcastle Playhouse in May 2002.
