1977. An heiress, kind and generous, is found dead in her bed. Her night nurse, lying lifeless on the staircase. A robbery? A clumsy break-in? A conspiracy? A scandal! The Congdon family tragedy splashed across the headlines of every newspaper in Minnesota. But what really happened on that fateful night at the Glensheen Mansion? Whodunit?
Witness this dark musical that tackles the tale with wicked dialogue and evocative music.
“Glensheen,” the smash musical by composer/librettist Chan Poling and bookwriter Jeffrey Hatcher that starred Jen Maren as Marjorie Caldwell, the would-be heiress caught up in the notorious Congdon murders. Staged by Ron Peluso, “Glensheen” sold out three runs at History Theatre.
