About this show

Set in 1929, just before the Great Depression, Daddy Long Legs is a site-specific noir which drags the seediness and avarice of the Chicago Underworld out into the broad July daylight - literally. Bobby Widdle and Mars Streznick are two gangland toughs who have agreed on a lakefront meeting to settle a score. Bobby's marriage is at stake, and Mars might be the one who holds the key to Bobby's troubles - Mars may even be the cause of them. Mars brings with him a sack unmistakably filled with the leftovers from a 'rub-out'. Who's in the sack? Will Bobby be next? At once period drama and comedic slug-fest, Daddy Long Legs takes us back to the time of the St. Valentine's Day massacre - through the eyes of two thugs caught in a dangerous web of intrigues and double-crosses.
