BLOODLESS: THE TRIAL OF BURKE AND HARE. A wickedly entertaining musical spectacle and award-winning fringe festival hit, the show recounts the historical case of two 19th century Irish serial killers who go into business selling corpses to medical anatomy schools. Reminiscent of Sweeney Todd, this raucous, eerie tale of deceit, murder and mayhem is told in memorable song, macabre humour, and compelling lyrics.
Canadian playwright Joseph Aragon is considered a composer with uncommon talent, and this morbidly entertaining show has been lauded as a “tour de force: smart, dark and daring” (Winnipeg Free Press).
