IN A NUTSHELL

A NEW PLAY BY DAVID FERGUSON

Suddenly Dance Theatre's DAVID FERGUSON has been commissioned by the Belfry Theatre to write a new play starring LYNDA RAINO inspired by Frances Glessner Lee, who in the 1940’s made the ‘Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death’ - a series of dollhouse-sized death-scenes to teach the police how to conduct themselves in real-life crime scenes.
