Crawlspace: A True Crime Musical
Years after her interviews with accused killer, John Wayne Gacy, famed forensic psychologist Dr. Judy Matthewson remains haunted by the case. As a survivor of abuse, she has devoted her career to studying the origins of violence as related to the human brain and believes this case still holds hidden answers. She remains obsessed - convinced she missed something during those initial visits. Searching for answers, she returns to memories of her time with John, as his narrative conjures visions of his difficult childhood, adult life, murders and arrest.
