And the mysteries often represent a threat to everyone's peace of mind.

Luna Cor Amantis

Bible for theatre play

It is 11:20 am, on June 17, 1907, when Eugénie Pounard, a servant at Château De Bernis, utters a cry of horror. In the little salon, the count's body lies there, inert, on the ground, with his tongue hanging and his eyes bulging. He is dead, he who got married the same day! Revenge, conspiracy, betrayal; What obscure motive had caused the old judge's enemies to commit this horrible act?
