NAUGATUCK — Phoenix Stage Company will present seven performances of “Kill Me Deadly” by Bill Robens beginning Saturday.

The play follows the character of Charlie Nickels, a gumshoe in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles as he investigates the murder of a client and the theft of her 300 karat diamond. This detective noir is a parody that is directed by Ed Bassett.

“Kill Me Deadly” will be presented at the theater, 686 Rubber Ave., Naugatuck March 16, 22, 23, 29 and 30 at 8 p.m. and March 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. For tickets, call the box office at (203) 632-8546 or email at
