There is an unexpected, surprising and shocking side to Geneva. That's the side that Corinne Jacquet's bestselling book 'Meurtres à Genève' spoke about. Adapted for the stage by Jacques Sallin, Tram'Drames is a show that tells these true tales of murder and mystery - staged aboard the historic green trams as the tram moves through Geneva. 

The audience will be taken to the Glass House to meet its creepy head of the household, encounter the jeweler with a penchant for dismemberment and discover the sad tale of the Rive Hit Man.

Who knew that Geneva had such a terribly dark and macabre side?

 

 

In conjunction with the tpg and the Association Genevoise du Musée des Tramways, the tram will move along the tram lines, starting at the Plain Palais roundabout at 20:13 SHARP between 12 - 30 June. 

Shows in English:

  •  - Friday 14 June 
  •  - Thursday 20 June
  •  - Saturday 22 June - SOLD OUT
  •  - Friday 28 June

 

As the tram has only 48 seats, this will be the capacity for each show, providing an intimate setting to tell seven stories. 

Further shows will take place 13 - 27 September 2019.
