“Dirty Diamonds” – a gem for Factory Theater’s 15th Season!

Dirty Diamonds, by Mike Beyer and directed by Manny Tamayo, tells the story of a Las Vegas man who quickly gets tangled up with a femme fatale, who entices him into a plan to recover some buried diamonds. Together, along with the woman’s ex-boyfriend, they work to recover the diamonds in time to hand them over to a murderous drug kingpin. Little do they know the kingpin has other plans for them. This “dark, comic thriller” appears to be the perfect production to mark Factory Theater’s 15th season.  For example:

Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune concludes:

Dirty Diamonds may be populated by archetypes, but they are believable within the framework of Beyer’s script. The production is expertly directed by Manny Tamayo.) The play is pure genre — a square gets mixed up with a criminal element — but a genre done well can be blissfully entertaining.”
