The Maltese Falcon at Barndoor Productions

Maltese Falcon poster

 

a new play based on
Dashiell Hammett’s famous novel

 

Sam Spade is a womanizing, down-on-his-luck private eye, going nowhere fast — until a dangerous young woman walks into his life — and his partner is murdered.

The quintessential “hard-boiled detective” story, The Maltese Falcon is known around the world — but this new stage adaptation brings even more excitement and mystery to the story.

Almost word-for-word from Hammett’s novel, it’s a trip down film noir alley — for the stage!

Everything will be made fresh as you would expect from The Hungry Planet. Dishes on the eclectic, globally-inspired menu will highlight a variety of local ingredients. Weather-permitting an outdoor picnic area will be created so diners can enjoy their meals with other Hungry Planet fans and reminisce about the good old days. All main dishes will be priced at $25 and Judy plans to have a few of her famous desserts and salads on hand to compliment your meal. Place your order in advance by phone.

Orders can be placed starting the Monday prior to the event so orders for June 4 can be called in beginning Monday May 30 and orders for June 11 can be called in beginning Monday June 6 at 613-326-8593. PAYMENT BY CASH ONLY PLEASE
