TORONTO - A morbidly entertaining tale of murder and mayhem based on the true story of two 19th century Irish serial killers and their cut-throat pursuit of riches. Directed by Theatre 20 Artistic Director Adam Brazier with Founding Artist Colm Wilkinson as Creative Consultant, the story of Bloodless is told with memorable song, macabre humour and compelling lyrics.

Theatre 20, a new artist-led musical theatre company known for their dedication to evocative Canadian-made and story-driven work, celebrates the first full production in its history, Bloodless: The Trial of Burke and Hare.

This darkly funny and sinfully entertaining musical by Winnipeg playwright Joseph Aragon (Illuminati: The Musical) opens Oct. 12 at Toronto's Panasonic Theatre (previews begin Oct. 9 with press opening Oct. 11) and runs through the 28th of October.

Set against a 19th century backdrop in Edinburgh, Scotland, Bloodless revisits the true story of two serial killers who manage to make crime pay - literally - when they create a successful business selling their victims to medical schools.

Winner of the "Best of Fest" award (2009) at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival and the "Harry S. Rintoul" award for Best New Manitoban Play, Bloodless is directed by Theatre 20 Founding Artist and Artistic Director Adam Brazier (Passion, Into The Woods), who made his directorial debut in 2010 with Birdland Theatre's Dora Award-nominated production of Assassins.

Reminiscent of Sweeney Todd, this is a raucous, eerie tale of deceit, murder, and mayhem.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
