“How is it possible to kill someone without a reason? I don’t know, but I didn’t have a reason.” 

There’s an angel on a killing spree in the city of Bremen. For more than a decade she systematically poisons everyone in her life: parents, children, lovers and friends. As the body count mounts, she layers herself in thirteen corsets, creating a dangerous illusion of beauty. 

This theatre piece devised by Erin Gilgen, Emma Hughes, Naomi Faughnan and Louisa Sanfey, circles the mysteries of an incredible true story about the limits of what a woman can take. 

Sometimes, when you can’t bend anymore, you break.
