Detective Bass can't catch a break: his boss is a hard-ass, his partner's a knucklehead, his wife's a cheat, and now he has to chase down a perp who has a screwdriver in his head. An eclectic set of shady characters-crooked coroners, a TV-personality doctor, a femme fatale, and one extraordinarily valuable sculpture-run roughshod through a hilarious maze of double-crosses and double-identities. 2011 Writers Guild Award-winner Keith Huff lampoons the Windy City with a menacing smirk and tongue in cheek in this gritty modern noir directed by David Schwimmer.

The cast of Big Lake Big City includes Ensemble Members Thomas J. Cox, Anthony Fleming III and Philip R. Smith; Kareem Bandealy, Katherine Cunningham, Danny Goldring, Beth Lacke, Eddie Martinez, J. Salome Martinez and Wendy Mateo.
