Alley Theatre presents Alley All New Festival: Nutshell
Frances Glessner Lee, the "mother of forensic science" and creator of The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death, has been dead since 1962. But that doesn’t stop her from hijacking a seminar on homicide investigation in Baltimore. She’s come to investigate a crime. But which crime?
Austin playwright C. Denby Swanson’s play Nutshell is inspired by a vital real-life character who demands to know: who gets justice?
This will be a reading, not a full production.
