"A Crime in a Madhouse" (theatre/horror)

On the eve of her release from an insane asylum housed in a convent, young Louise begs to be released without spending one last night there. The doctor will not let her go, insisting that no harm will come to her by spending one last night. But Louise fears the woman from Normandy and the hunchback, her two roommates who have taken an obsessive interest in her…especially her eyes. And what of the mysterious One Eye, unseen and supposedly paralyzed in the next room? As the night comes Louise’s fear builds. Will she survive the night? 

Brought to you by VitalSaenz Productions, this show is done in the style of the Grand Guignol (gheen-YAHL), "A Crime in a Madhouse" is one of the original scripts used in that famous theater in France at the turn of the century. Known for works that caused audiences to walk out, faint and/or vomit, the Grand Guignol gained international fame.

Now resurrected for your sick pleasure, this play (created by one of the fathers of psychology) is designed to stretch your nerves to the breaking point and challenge the contents of your stomach to stay where they are. Not for children, or the faint of heart, this is an event not to be missed by the true lover of Halloween.

Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol – known as the Grand Guignol – was a theatre in the Pigalle district of Paris. From its opening in 1897 until its closing in 1962, it specialised in naturalistic horror shows. Its name is often used as a general term for graphic, amoral horror entertainment, a genre popular from Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre, to today's splatter films.
