Albert is an ex-con trying to build a better life for himself after some time spent unjustly imprisoned. Bitter and isolated, Albert's finally able to see a bit of light at the end of the tunnel when he finds a job working alongside his niece at Contrapasso's book restoration shop. Sure, some things certainly seem amiss at Contrapasso's, but Albert knows not to ask too many questions, and is happy to look the other way. That is, until it becomes clear that his new boss is a murderer. And when the police suspect Albert of the crimes, he'll have to prove his innocence by any means necessary. MadKap Productions' presentation of Corpus Delicti marks the world premiere of this tale of poetic justice from Chicago playwright David Alex. Learn More

Very disappointing. When Remy Bumppo does something right, it is magical; but when they do something poorly, they do everything wrong. The cast very simply walked through the dialog - no emotion; sometimes they talked loud, but that does not substitute for anger or fear. No love, no happiness, no hate - no emotion. The setting was supposed to be '60s Chicago, but it wasn't. There was 60s music, but the setting was some non-discript principality with no time or location or purpose. If it is to be Chicago, then the prince should be a politician, or corporate leader, or gang leader; because we don't have princes here! Remy Bumppo has a new artistic director; if this is where he is going, find a plan B. I suppose I could go on, but very simply - everything was wrong with this show.

Show was looooong. 2:45 with two intermissions. Did go reasonably fast though. Performance was well done and reasonably well acted...plot was eh. Can't say it was the best thing I've ever seen or why Remy Bumbo chose to put it on, by not mad I went.
