A Brief History of Murder

TWO INDEPENDENT and INTERLOCKING PLAYS
about love, death and pastries.

A mind-bending collision of Grand Guignol, David Lynch, Broadway musicals, and police procedurals, A BRIEF HISTORY OF MURDER tells the story of a series of grisly killings in the small town of Sentinel, Oklahoma. This sprawling, absurd mystery appears in a double billing of two independent yet interlocking plays: "Detectives" follows an intrepid private investigator and her colleagues as they try to track down the killer; "Victims" reveals the dark underbelly of Sentinel as its colorful inhabitants become tangled in horrific events beyond their control. From the creators of the indie theater hit ADVENTURE QUEST, this is a truly unique and occasionally stomach-turning theatrical experience.

This production includes graphic nudity and gore.
