The Good Doctor Holmes & His Children of God
An New Play By: Julian R. Munds
In 1894 the bodies of two little girls were discovered in a Toronto basement by an eccentric, mild mannered, private detective. This was the beginning of a nightmare.
Julian R. Munds' new play puts us in touch with one of the most prolific serial killers in history: Dr. Henry Howard Holmes. Holmes, a doctor, pharmacist, sometimes cannibal, constructed a hotel in Chicago
for a singular purpose: to destroy human life. Charged in the deaths of nine individuals, Dr. H. H. Holmes is thought to be connected with more than two hundred disappearances during the Chicago World's
Fair of 1893.
In "The Good Doctor Holmes..", Munds takes us into the interrogation room, puts HH at the forefront, in all his genius and all his horror, and weaves a labyrinthine fantasia that is sometimes an episode
of Columbo and sometimes a tale by H.P. Lovecraft.

With aid from the Quantico Behavioural Archive, personal journals of Carrie Pitezel, and using a modern perspective,
this show drags one of the forgotten cases of Toronto The Goods past from the shadows, and makes one realize they dont have to look far to find modern headlines.
