SUMMARY
MURDER ON THE TRAM - WITH A GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE
Meurtres à Genève de Corinne Jaquet

Geneva seems to be such a respectable place! Yet the City of Calvin keeps many secrets. There is another side to Geneva, weird and dark. Unexpected, surprising, shocking. A Geneva so unknown that even the Genevois themselves are unaware of it. Are you ready to dive in?

Adapted from 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. A night at the theatre – where the stage (and the audience) are traveling along the tram tracks! The narrow, moving stage provides an exciting challenge for the performers, who bring the stories to life in the very vehicles that worked the city at the time they took place…and in some cases, bore witness to the original crimes.

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.

It's not just in Paris that crime flourishes, we in the village also have beautiful murders.

Renegade Saints

In the spirit of International Geneva, the Compagnie La Mouette and the Renegade Saints have joined forces to present the play in both French and English. An alternating schedule will ensure that locals and tourists, expats and lifelong residents, can enjoy the show either in English or in French.

Everyone is invited to climb on board if they dare! The most seasoned Genevois and the newest arrival to town can sit side by side, traveling back in time to discover the gory history of the city, while the tram trundles through the very areas where these terrible crimes were committed. 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…
