"Nighthawks," set in Edward Hopper’s classic painting, is a tongue and cheek tribute to film noir in this lighthearted and fun murder mystery. Columbus playwright Johnrick Hole brings to life the four characters in Hopper’s painting to find out just who killed Bernie the Bookie. Was it Jerry, the counter man who has an unhealthy obsessive passion for his pies? Don, the gambler who owed Bernie a lot of money? Or Flo, the mysterious redhead with an old score to settle. Sarge, the Detective, asks the questions and turns the screws to get to the bottom of this madcap and silly comedy.
