In 2004, following completion of the very first Fossgate Studios film York Comedy Festival, director and Fossgate Studios co-creator Jack Binks tried to drunkenly bully Spencer Vale into writing a noir set in York. Fast forward 12 years and it seems fitting that (1) he finally got round to it, (2) it stars Peter Marshall, one of the performers in the original York Comedy Festival film and (3) it should premiere at York’s now resident comedy festival the Great Yorkshire Fringe.
History lesson over and personal coincidences aside, here’s what it’s all about:
Social media investigator Pedey PD is distracted from his search for serial killer – the Dogfish – when a sultry dame walks into his office looking for help. His investigations collide and lead him to unexpected conclusions.
