A true “Crime of the Century” -  Chicago, May 21, 1924. Nathan Leopold Jr., age 18, and Robert Loeb, age 19, killed 14-year-old Bobby Franks for the thrill of it. Legendary attorney Clarence Darrow defended them, pleading eloquently against capital punishment in a sensational trial.

Why would uber-wealthy young men murder an innocent boy? What demons lurked behind Loeb’s flashing good looks and behind Leopold’s saturnine intellect? Did these self-proclaimed Nietzschean “supermen” function as a double-organism? Were they simply born without human empathy?

This exquisite Off-Broadway hit explores the complex relationship between these two who longed to create a private world of fevered intellect and romantic passion.
