FROM THE BOOK BY NELLIE BLY
ADAPTED AND DIRECTED BY PROF. TONY VEZNER
In 1887, young Nellie Bly was determined to be a New York reporter. She dared to have herself declared insane so that she could investigate first-hand the inner workings of the infamous Blackwell Island Asylum. Her harrowing account of life in the asylum and the mistreated women there created a new standard in investigative journalism but may have cost her more than we know.
