Musical New work Minnesota premiere

written by Jeffrey Hatcher

music by Chan Poling

October 3–October 25, 2015

A crackling musical with a wicked edge

1977.  An heiress, kind and generous, found dead in her bed. Her night nurse, laying lifeless on the staircase. A robbery? A clumsy break-in? A conspiracy? A scandal! The Congdon family tragedy splashed across the headlines of every newspaper in Minnesota. But what really happened on that fateful night at the Glensheen Mansion? Whodunit?

Witness this dark musical that tackles the tale with wicked dialogue and evocative music.
