Episode Info:

Summary: A psychopath finds brief reprieve from a prolonged depression in a Parisian daredevil's act. The Cyclist played by Tony Wolf. Narration, Sound Design and Composition by Jon Fredette. Jeanne Mareteux Level (1875-1926) was a doctor and author of some 700 'conte cruel', many of which were adapted for performance at the infamous Grand Guignol theatre in Paris. Level began to write while on night shifts in a hospital where he was working as a surgeon, and his stories soon began to appear regularly in the newspaper, Le Journal. 26 of his 'cruel tales' were translated into English by Alys Eyre Macklin and published shortly after the First World War as Tales of Mystery and Horror in the US, and as Crises in the UK.
