DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE Geneva audiences have a chance to experience a totally fresh theatre approach – Tram’Drames – a theatre show performed live on a historic green tram. Not only is this approach new, but it is also sees a brand new collaboration between English and French theatre in the city – involving Swiss theatre company La Mouette and the English improvisation team, Renegade Saints.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
All aboard! Join us for a tram ride that will send shivers down your spine! From the comfort of your seat, discover the bloodiest crimes in Geneva history: visit the Glass House and meet its creepy head of the household, encounter the jeweler with a penchant for dismemberment, discover the sad tale of the Rive Hit Man, and try to solve the only unsolved mystery to take place on the tram tracks: the 12 Tram Murder.
Six stories of murder – crimes of passion, madness, or folly. Women in love, abandoned women, jealous women. Deranged, crazy, despicable men. Six stories that took place in Geneva: a dull little town where no murders are ever committed, or so they say…
Adapted from Swiss journalist and author Corinne Jacquet’s bestseller ‘Meurtres à Genève’ (Geneva Murders) by Jacques Sallin, Tram’Drames is staged in the historic green trams, in collaboration with the association that maintains them, the Association Genevoise du Musée des Tramways.
