Devils Don't Forget



The Mammals Theatre Company presents

DEVILS DON'T FORGET

written and directed by Bob Fisher

“It's like Dario Argento putting flowers on the grave of Raymond Chandler” - Nick Green w/The Reader

DEVILS DON'T FORGET – An amnesiac tries desperately to not remember his past, convinced that he was an accessory to some unspeakable evil. But his amnesia provides no refuge when devils he had hoped to forget return to collect their due. Inspired by 50’s hardboiled noir as well as classic Grand Guignol, DEVILS DON'T FORGET is an atmospheric descent into a metropolis populated with Femme Fatales, Punch Drunk Gangsters, and Shadowy Figures seemingly supernatural. It is the story of a man who tries to escape a demonic global conspiracy using self induced amnesia.

DEVILS DONT FORGET is the second of three plays in a cycle entitled THE NOIR TRIPTYCH. Part One was BREED WITH ME, originally presented in Spring of 2003 (Highly Recommended, Chicago Reader). Part Three, THE MEATLOCKER is currently targeted to premiere in winter of 2009.
