Future Tenant Presents: Suspicious Package
Following a highly successful sold-out run as part of The Film Festival: A Theatre Festival, and a successful run at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Future Tenant is announcing a run of the iPod noir Suspicious Package. Told via Zune Media Players, the story unfolds as audience members (six at a time) are guided through their roles with both aural and visual cues. Video flashbacks and narrative voiceovers fill your backstory while maps of locations and your dialogue are displayed on screen. Part theatrical experience, part live video game, Suspicious Package immerses its audience within the gritty chiaroscuro world of film noir, where not everything is black and white.

As the story begins, our starring showgirl has fallen ill. Is she faking to get out of her contract? Or is her producer setting her up? Is her sister angling for her part? Will the detective get to the bottom of things before they turn deadly? The audience experiences Suspicious Package not as a detached observer but as a participant. Cast as characters such as the Detective, theStarlet, the Heiress, or the Producer in the mean streets of 1940s Pittsburgh, will you be a victim of circumstance or the guilty partner? Personal video players accompany you through the mystery and prompt you through your lines as you star in the show where technology, reality, theater, and film meet.

Created by mother/daughter team Gyda Arber and Wendy Coyle, Arber is an actress/director, known for her roles in Greed: A Musical Love $tory (Anna Nicole Smith), the English-language premiere of Vaclav Havel's Mountain Hotel, and Inverse Theater's Midnight Brainwash Revival, and as assistant director of the critically-acclaimed Michael Gardner adaptation of Notes from Underground. Coyle is a writer/translator whose work has appeared in The Tehran Post, The SF Bay Guardian, and The San Francisco Examiner.
