"It is madness in all women to let a secret love kindle within them, which, if unreturned and unknown, must devour the life that feeds it." A bold and theatrically inventive adaptation of the literary classic that succeeds as both a wise distillation of the novel and a thrilling piece of theatre in its own right.

"But you've asked a simple question, and I've told you why. It wasn't on a dare or on a whim. It's hard to comprehend now that the reason why, was simply that I went along with him." Relationships can be murder. In 1924, two wealthy Chicago University students abducted and murdered a young boy for no reason other than wanting to carry out ‘the perfect crime’. Thirty-four years later, the true motives were revealed. Stephen Dolginoff’s one-act musical brings real-life…

As the piece develops the sense of a solid story/timeline disintegrates using the experience of disassociation. Her memory jumps back and forth as her sense of self disconnects, and she becomes overwhelmed by the potential beauty of her trauma.

A lot of plotting and hijinks ensue, and it seems that not one of these schemers is going to get much rest, unless it's an eternal one.
