Bloodless: The Trial of Burke and Hare
Written and composed by Joseph Aragon | Directed by Sharon Bajer
Robbing graves for medical science is back breaking work.
Why dig up corpses when you can create your own?
A musically morbid tale of money lust and murder in 19th century Scotland.
It follows the tale of Irish innkeepers William Burke and William Hare, whose business takes a turn for the murderous when word gets out that fresh corpses fetch a pretty penny at the medical academy.
This deliciously dark and scandalously true story returns to Winnipeg, where it got its award-wining start at the 2009 Fringe Festival, after a professional world premiere at the Panasonic Theatre in Toronto last year.
