In 1894 the bodies of two little girls were discovered in a Toronto basement. This was just the tip of the iceberg. Julian R. Munds' new play puts us in touch with one of the most prolific serial killers in history Dr. Henry Howard Holmes who built a hotel in Chicago for the singular purpose of the destruction of human life. Charged in the deaths of 9 individuals, Dr. H. H. Holmes is thought to be connected with more than two hundred disappearances of people during the Chicago World's Fair of 1893. In "The Good Doctor Holmes..", Munds takes us into the interrogation room, puts HH at the forefront, in all his genius and all his horror, and weaves a labyrinthine fantasia that Hitchcock and Poe would lust after.
