"Without entrapment, you cannot experience freedom. True freedom only comes from being liberated, from escaping."

RUTH (Girl in the Box)

In 1968, Ruth Eisemann-Schier made history as the first woman to end up on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, after she and her boy- friend kidnapped a millionaire’s daughter and held her for ransom by burying her underground in a plexiglass coffin. Join us as we unearth this horror and the making of a criminal.

The show premiered at the St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival in June 2018. 

Girl in the Box is currently undergoing a developmental workshop through the Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre and will be remounted as part of Live Five Theatre's 2019-2020 season.
