Life news: I got a dog


Gumshoe, go experience it

Connections, dichotomies, serendipities – GUMSHOE delivers each in its 90-minute sprint through the sprawling corridors of the Free Library.

This is theatre unlike any you’ve seen before. SLEEP NO MORE but in a public setting and with a plot surprisingly grounded in FACT. Based in part on a Poe short said to launch the detective genre (The Murders in the Rue Morgue) each rendition of GUMSHOE sees a new crop of candidates enter training to be a gumshoe, that stealthy inquisitor who emerged in the late 19th-century, and join the agents in their hunt to solve the mystery.
