Blue Orange Arts Edgar Allan Poe: The Murders in the Rue Morgue

Theatre

8+

The original detective story. Two women are found brutally murdered in their Parisian home – one virtually decapitated, the other thrust up a chimney. The police are baffled by the apparent lack of any possible egress by the killers and strange voices heard just after the blood-curdling screams of the women. The lack of motive – not for the murders themselves but for the savage nature of the crime – leads them to arrest an innocent man. C August Dupin steps in to investigate the seemingly impossible events.
