The true story of Nellie Bly, the New York World reporter who checked herself into a lunatic asylum to report on the horrors in 1887. Medical historians and patient advocates, however, rightly revere Bly for her infamous exposé. Bly published her daring dispatches as a book, “Ten Days in a Mad-House.” that remains a classic in the annals of psychiatry and a cogent warning against inhumane treatment of the mentally ill. Worcester’s own Stephen Murray has scored this historical tale into an amazing musical. This is a world premiere!

*Production is in collaboration with Worcester Historical Museum, Worcester Women's History Project, and Open Sky.
