Murderers Confess at Christmastime

by Jason Chinn

A Co-Production from Outside the March and The Serial Collective

A cross-dressing kidnapper falls in love with his latest victim, a drug-addicted housewife cracks under the pressure of the holidays, and an office worker is spurned by the object of his affection. Christmas comes early with this raucous World Premiere by provocative Edmontonian playwright and OtM Associate Artist Jason Chinn (last seen in Mr. Marmalade). Murderers Confess at Christmastime premieres at SummerWorks after two years in development at the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton.

Outside the March returns to SummerWorks for the third year in a row, following the success of Terminus and Mr. Marmalade. Murderers Confess features an all-star cast, pairing up OtM company regulars with some of Canada’s leading performers.
