The story of Evelyn Grant Mclean Dick is one of the most enduring murder mysteries that occurred in Hamilton, Ontario in 1946. Evelyn Dick was implicated in the killing of her husband whose dismembered body parts were discovered. The play stages what may have occurred 50 years ago and tries to tell the notorious story about a crime that was committed in one of Theatre Sheridan’s communities. It gives the audience an inside look at a piece of bizarre Canadian history.
