Once described as “amoral, “graphic” and “gruesome,” this event will be a totally new experience for the Halloween afficionado. This type of entertainment hasn’t been seen in New England before. For those who have tried the haunted houses, the hayrides, the corn mazes, and are thirsting for something new, “A Crime in a Madhouse” promises to provide the stomach-churning thrills that are perfect for Halloween.

Young Louise has been incarcerated in the asylum at Saint Léger, but is now declared well enough to return home. She is set to leave in the morning. But she is terrified to spend one more night there. Her roommates, the woman from Normandy and the hunchback, have been eyeing her strangely. And what
have they been planning with the one-eyed invalid who rooms next door? The sister in charge seems unconcerned. The doctor is more interested in Louise for…who knows? What will happen to Louise if she must remain in the madhouse for one. More. Night?

“A Crime in a Madhouse” was one of the original entertainments presented by a theater in Paris at the turn of the 20th century, called The Grand Guignol. Internationally famous for their shows that caused grown men to faint and women to vomit in the aisles, The Grand Guignol thrived for about 50 years and
then closed its doors forever. Their shows were salacious and gratuitously violent, but also tense and nerve-jangling. Some of the original scripts they developed, including this one, were co-authored by Alfred Binet, one of the fathers of modern psychology.
