The Mademoiselle Dupin’s Case

"The Mademoiselle Dupin’s Case" is a theatrical collage of several short stories by Edgar Allan Poe, with a focus on dramatizing two from the series of detective stories - "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" and "The Purloined Letter" - as well as incorporating motifs from the short story "The Black Cat." These stories are interwoven through the character of Detective August Dupin, a role assigned to a woman in the production by the Croatian National Theatre Split, under the direction of Natalija Manojlović and dramatization by Ivana Vuković, portraying Mademoiselle Dupin as the play's heroine.
