Blood Nocturne

By The Winding Sheet Outfit

Created by The Winding Sheet Outfit

You may have heard of that Hungarian Countess. Killed 650 virginal girls. Tortured and maimed them. Bathed in their blood. That is the story we know. Because that is the story the world has chosen to hear.
The creators say this show is appropriate for ages 16 and up

A new play with music, devised and composed from scratch, by the makers of last year's encore and award-winning Fringe showThe Memory Box of the Sister Fox!

Erzsébet Bathory's story is...complicated. And dark. Full of holes and covered in layers of historical question marks. We are going to give her music and make her fight for her life. We're not out to exonerate her, the lady was no saint. But she's not the real villian here. We must examine the ways human history chooses to present itself.



The Winding Sheet Outfit is delighted to return to the Minnesota Fringe Festival. Last year we presented The Memory Box of the Sisters Fox, a devised movement-drama about the founders of Spiritualism. Since then, TWSO has been busy with projects both small and large, including an Art Shanty version of our popular traveling tent series:The Theatre of the Tiny Clandestines (funded in part by the Irrigate grant and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Irrigate, and our lovely donors and supporters).

We have a lot of plans in our pantry and we're making efforts to bring our simple, weird, shadowy stories out of the theaters and to suprising spaces near you in the future.Keep track of us, and you'll be rewarded. If you like what we do, it's you we're making these stories for.
