"Under director and costume designer Emily Dix, the visual details, including millinery by David Dunkley, are generally understated but impressive...Most importantly, she generally keeps the tension taut: will someone discover what’s in the trunk?"
                                                    - Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine


Inspired by true events, Patrick Hamilton’s 1929 play is an edge-of-your-seat thriller about two young men who murder a classmate in cold blood, just for the sheer “thrill of it”. The story unfolds in real-time, watching as the young men host a party with the deceased still in their apartment. A chilling look into the mind of young killers and the idea that some men deserve the “privilege” of murder. Director Emily Dix has updated this text and adapted the story for a Canadian audience in the beautiful site-specific setting of the historic Gibson House Museum. In-keeping with Bygone Theatre’s mandate and style, the show will be a beautiful period piece with authentic-styled props and costumes. Hats designed by award winning milliner David Dunkley.

"The supporting cast are excellent...the character work is outstanding...where this company dug up such marvellous and contrasting costumes is beyond me." - Mike Anderson, Mooney on Theatre

Bygone Theatre | Killer Sister, Kill! | Aaron Maxwell Williams

kill sister,


a musical




A Psychotronic, Hell-trip of Song, Sleaze and Revenge! A nun, doing God's work on the filthy streets of 70s New York, reunites with her beloved sister to celebrate her wedding. Their night of revelry is despoiled by two vulgar, depraved sickos. Left for dead and robbed of her sister and her voice, the Woman of God rebuilds herself as a Weapon of Hellbent Vengeance!

New York Times Top 10 Fringe Shows to See
(NYC International Fringe Festival, 2015).

"The extraordinarily talented cast...worked as a cohesive whole to bring this dark musical to life. Kill Sister, Kill! is ready for prime time and I think there is an audience out there who will appreciate what the production team has achieved. Shock musical theater may be here to stay!"
​- Dr. Tom Stevens, Rising Action
