The French author René-Charles Guilbert de Pixérécourt helped to invent the genre of melodrama. But his intense, macabre plays–full of murderers, corpses, intrigue, and dogs–are anything but mellow. The company Polybe + Seats presents a translation of this tale of youthful innocence and sinister resurrectionists.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Oct. 20. Continues through Nov. 13, 2011
