Breaking away from their exploratory and experimental format, as seen in TRANSFORM 2019 and 2020, non-binary drag collective The Darlings (Rose Butch, Continental Breakfast, Maiden China and PM) follow a fantastical film noir narrative for the first time, as their detective alter egos Bloom, Buffet, Damsel, and Daye investigate their own disappearances.
