A synopsis for each play is coming soon. Thanks for checking back.
Synopsis: It is June 1900, the beginning of hurricane season in a time when folks were reluctant to use the word and there was no warning system ahead of one. New Orleans is no stranger to great storms and no stranger to frequent crime. The city is reeling from the discovery of a particularly horrific and gruesome murder that has shocked the nation. Madeleine and Gabrielle Leveque come from a family of means so why were they working as housekeeper and cook? And why would they murder their wealthy employers in such a horrific way? With only circumstantial evidence against her, Gabrielle is released to her mother, Marguerite. Madeleine is declared insane and unable to stand trial. She sits eerily silent in the Louisiana Retreat for the Feeble Minded. Then Sister Thérèse, a member of the religious order that operates the sanitarium, begins to visit her and slowly Madeleine emerges from her silent hell. The nun engineers her release and reunites Madeleine with her sister and mother in Galveston, Texas where they have fled. On September 8, 1900 — the day the 1900 Storm made landfall at Galveston forever changing the life of that city — there is an explosive unveiling of family cycles and secrets and the revelation of the true author of the employers’ gruesome deaths.
