A historical murder mystery written by local playwright, Jeffrey Symes, recounting actual events that occurred here in our own backyard. In 1873, two innocent Norwegian immigrant women were brutally murdered out on the Isles of Shoals right off of the Portsmouth Harbor. The man accused of the crime was jailed in North Berwick, arrested next door in Farmington, NH, and put on trial.

In this first Youth Drama at the Rochester Performance & Arts Center, 8 incredible Noble High School students will blow you away as you witness the murders, the trial, and the aftermath. This production is deliciously designed – dressed in authentic, antique Victorian and Norwegian costumes and set pieces lovingly collected by local Award-Winning Director, Jenn Batchelder.
