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.
