Since 2006, The Overtime Theater has led the way in premiering new, original works and unconventional remakes of old stage classics in San Antonio. The year 2011 will keep that dedication going strong as the theater debuts "All Good Things," the final installment of their "Stage Noir" series on Friday.
Written by Scott McDowell and directed by Andrew Thornton, the original work is the final chapter of the duo's detective series, which also included "The Good Samaritan" (2008) and "The Hard Bargain" (2010), according to www.mysanantonio.com. McDowell wrote and Thornton directed the first two plays as well.
The play centers around San Francisco homicide detectives Blake and Winters, who are battling a serial killer who can rattle even the most veteran of cops. The killer has no problem crossing boundaries, but when the two detectives cross lines as well to try and stop the killings, their lives and their relationship are thrust into jeopardy, according to the website.
The play will continue its run through Feb. 12. General admission tickets are $12 and $9 for teachers, students with ID, seniors aged 65 and over and San Antonio Theatre Coalition members.
The Overtime Theater is located at The Blue Star Arts Complex, 1414 S. Alamo St., Suite 103 in San Antonio. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 210-557-7562 or go to www.theovertimetheater.net.
