WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Done in the snappy-patter style of the great mystery writer Raymond Chandler, the husband and wife team of Anthony Dodge and Marcia Milgrom Dodge explore a genre usually reserved for male exploits in Venus Flytrap. But their detective, Butch Diamond, is a woman. A woman who likes women. And whom women like back. A lot. While there are no chronicles confirming the 40's detective heroine existing in those conservative times, the play explores how much--or how little--things have changed when it comes to embracing outcasts and disenfranchised citizens. A journey behind closed doors and closed closets, you could call it a postmodernist-feminist mystery play. You could call it femme noir. Or you could simply call it Venus Flytrap.
