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

It was not what I expected (I expected wild, wacky and funny stories), which left me slightly disappointed immediately after the show. The more I thought about it, however, the more I liked the idea and appreciated the stories shared. It gets pretty heavy at times with some of the stories, but overall is an interesting message and a thought-provoking/conversation starting topic.

If you did it, there's probably a story behind it. Whether it was love or lust, shy or sexy, awkward or awesome or somewhere in between, chances are you remember your first sexual experience. It's one of the few things almost every person on the planet has in common, yet we rarely talk about it. Until now...
