The Trial of Nancy Clem

See More Times And Dates

The Trial of Nancy Clem, written by playwright in residence James Trofatter, will be performed on the Cook Theater Stage at Indiana Landmarks.

At this full length production, you will revisit the true crime story of the notorious and nefarious Nancy Clem. Follow the story of the century as Benjamin Harrison prosecutes the suspected murderess.

Did she really murder her business partner and his bride in cold blood? Why was she carrying $8,000 cash on her when she was arrested? Will she be the first woman convicted of murder in Indiana? You be the judge!

Want to be part of the action? Purchase a Juror Ticket and help decide Clem’s fate! Juror tickets are limited to 16 per performance (12 jurists and 4 alternates) and include a complimentary drink and snack at intermission.

Join us for a special pre-show discussion! We are honored to host four Indiana judges who will lead a conversation about the importance of jury duty. This discussion will take place nightly beginning 30 minutes before the start of the performance.

Reservations strongly suggested. Please direct questions to Delia Robertson, Special Events and Marketing Manager: (317) 631-1888 or email events@bhpsite.org.
