The weather was somewhat cold, but the Red Line has a stop a block away, at Clybourn and North Ave.. I wore a pair of pants and sweater. Dress is very casual..

Great fun: ingenious staging, well cast, high energy, fast paced. The show ran for about 90 minutes, no intermission, and the time just flew by.

Description

Written by Emily Schwartz

Directed by Jimmy McDermott

Chased across the sea by destiny and Marconi’s wireless telegraph, this factual (and fanciful) turn of the century tragedy explores the bizarre story of this homicidal homeopath by having three different actors (Scott Cupper, Matt Holzfeind, & Stuart Ritter) portray the part of our dear, diabolical Doctor.

The Strange Tree Group returns to its grand guignol roots with this marvelously macabre tale about love, death, daring escapes and a bathtub full of body parts.
