Chicago, 1924. Two wealthy college kids. One obsessed with crime, the other love. A contract signed in blood. They believed that they'd committed the perfect murder - but had they?

Stephen Dolginoff’s chamber musical examines the relationship between Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, both of whom appeared wealthy, normal and intelligent, training to become lawyers with comfortable lives ahead of them.

Through a series of flashbacks we are taken on the young men’s journeys, one obsessed by the philosophy of Nietzsche to the point where he believed he was a ‘Superman’ above the law, the other a loner and willing accomplice in return for time, attention and conditional love.

Back in London for a post-Edinburgh run as part of Grimeborn

Ages  15+

Arcola [Fringe,Off West End]

“A deeply but deliberately uncomfortable musical is superbly staged and sung. ”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, Express)
