March 1915. New York City health officials have apprehended 45-year-old Mary Mallon, better known as “Typhoid Mary," for the second time after linking her to another typhoid fever outbreak. Mallon is accused of having infected 51 people with typhoid fever, three of whom have died.  This experience will transport participants into what would have been the controlled chaos of such a sensational case. They will delve into the inherent entertainment in high profile “trials of the century," while dissecting the case of the woman known at one time as the deadliest in the world. Come give Typhoid Mary the trial she never received.
