Blue Orange Arts presents –
Edgar Allan Poe: The Murders in the Rue Morgue
As Part of Birmingham Fest
The original detective story.

Two women are found brutally murdered in their Parisian home in the Rue Morgue – one body, virtually decapitated, the other thrust head downwards up a chimney. The Police, baffled by the apparent lack of any possible egress by the killers, strange voices heard just after the blood curling screams of the women and the lack of a motive – not for the murders themselves but for the savage nature of the crime – arrest a seemingly innocent man. In steps C. August Dupin, to investigate the seemingly impossible events.

In Dupin, Edgar Alan Poe created the first modern detective that all others were based including: Sherlock Holmes, Arsene Lupin, Miss Marple and even Jessica Fletcher.

In steps C August Dupin, who Arthur Conan Doyle would go on to base Sherlock Holmes, to investigate the seemingly impossible events.
