VILLAINY – A NEW PLAY ABOUT HH HOLMES

VILLAINY ~ or ~ H. H. Holmes’ Own Story
new play in Sherman Oaks, CA called VILLAINY ~or~ H.H. HOLMES OWN STORY about America’s first known serial killer, the so called “Devil in the White City

Wednesday Oct 03, 2018 8:00 PM – Wednesday Nov 07, 2018 8:00 PM | $25.00

In 1893 a Devil roamed the White City at the Chicago World’s Fair.

The Devil was Herman Webster Mudgett, a medical doctor who went by the alias of Henry Howard Holmes, America’s first known serial killer.

When captured Holmes penned a pamphlet pleading his innocence, but quickly changed his tune when William Randolph Hearst offered a small fortune for the true story.

Holmes then wrote a lurid account of murdering men, women and children in a Hotel he built for the Fair, and selling their bones to medical schools.

“One pictures him scurrying into the cellar to dissect a corpse,” wrote Robert Bloch, author of PSYCHO, “then hurrying through a concealed passageway to join his latest inamorata in an upstairs bedroom. The comings and goings, the opening and closing of doors as though on cue, are reminiscent of a French farce.”

VILLAINY is Holmes’ Own Story as a sometimes scary, sometimes funny tale of murders & marriages, seductions & swindles, and… a whole lot of skeletons.
