Bluebeard brings his wife, Judith, home. “Is this really Bluebeard’s Castle”, she asks, looking around the suburban hallway.
Instead of ominous doors, a locked trunk sits in the living room. Judith begs for it to be opened, over and over again, and as it is, memories spill out. A wedding, a child, a family.
This castle is not a dank, airless dungeon, rather a happy home where Judith and Bluebeard have shared their most precious memories.
But now Judith is living with Dementia, and slips away from Bluebeard, leaving him alone with the shreds of their life.
This Bluebeard is a love story.
